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

S.038A - Alterations

 

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).

 

Alterations were made, perhaps in 1896 (also the year of construction).  Prof. Storrer has assigned that project catalog number S.038A.

 

Photographed in August 1993. 

 

Opus: T9606
