S.038 – Isodore H. Heller Residence, 5132 Woodlawn Avenue, Chicago, Illinois

 

Photographed in August 1993.  As the plaque notes, this house blends Louis Sullivan’s ornate style with Wright’s emerging geometric sensibilities.  There are fascinating details all over the structure.  The house is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places as well as being a local Chicago Landmark and a National Landmark.  This building is on the same street (seven blocks away) as the Robie House (#127).
