George Blossom House

George Blossom House


Chicago, Illinois (IL), US
Next door to the McArthur house, this is another early work of Wright's

This house was designed in 1892, while Wright was still in the employment of Adler & Sullivan. He was forbidden by the terms of his contract with them to work outside of Adler and Sullivan; this house was built despite that prohibition, as one of what Wright himself called his "bootleg" houses. From the exterior the house appears to be a traditional colonial revival house; however the interior departs from traditional colonial plans. The living room is at the center of the house with a staircase at the north side and a Palladian window on the south.
