S.024 – William H. Winslow Residence, 515 Auvergne Place, River Forest, Illinois

S.025 – Stable

 

Photographed on May 17, 2012.  The Winslow residence is historic because of the transition it represents.  This was the first commission after Wright left Louis Sullivan’s firm.  The style shows Sullivan’s attention to decorative detail, but it also introduces the world to Wright’s sense of geometry and trim.  An accompanying stable (S.025), visible only through the ornamental gateway, began to show Wright’s Prairie sensibilities on a fuller scale.
