Historic Prairie-Style House

  • Chicago, IL
Built in 1909, The Historic House sits on One-third of an acres of land and itself has over 6,000 sq. ft. of space. It was built in the Prairie Style, by architect George Maher. A contemporary of Frank Lloyd Wright, Maher designed many other grand homes in the area, as the lead architect during the original development of the neighborhood at the turn of the 19th century. One of Maher's signature styles is his Rhythm-Motif Theory, which utilizes geometric forms and local flora to create a unique architectural fingerprint. In our case, triangles and tulips can be observed on the tops of columns in the front of the house and garage, as well as triangles lining the edges of the building. Two original stained-glass windows in the front of the house, designed by the architect, further illustrate this motif. The interior of the house was mostly renovated in the 1920s and also reflects the time period. Later, residents of the home further modified the house to their own standards, adding several of the ornate architectural details we see today, including the stucco wall coverings, elaborate crown moldings, and the plaster angels in the corner of the Parlor. The house features 16 rooms with open layout, a sun-filled entrance hall, a grand staircase with crystal chandelier, three fireplaces, adjoining sunrooms, a 3-car garage attached by an arched port-cochère. Damage to the house in its later years was caused by decades of neglect, including a split in the roof which led to severe water damage throughout the house. It has since been restored to its former glory! Repairs were made with a gentle touch, to maintain the integrity of the house's history. Today, the house is almost as good as new! There are still a few repairs that are underway, including the front steps and the brick courtyard. Restored by the existing owners, today, the House is home to Creative Co-working's second location, and has new vibrancy as a co-working space and private events venue.
