S.024 – William H. Winslow Residence, 515 Auvergne Place, River Forest, Illinois
S.025 – Stable
The Winslow residence is historic because of the transition it represents. This was the first major 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.
Winslow co-owned the ironworks that produced elaborate trim for the Rookery Building (S.113) and Louis Sullivan's Carson, Pirie, Scott Building. His house is down the street from the Edward C. Waller Gates (S.065) on what was once Waller’s property.
