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.

About Chicago

Located in northeastern Illinois, Chicago is home to over 8,800 acres of green space and six-hundred parks. Its motto, urbs in horto, meaning “City in a Garden,” alludes to its impressive gardens and parks. Each has a unique heritage, weaving together the city’s architectural, social, political, landscape, and art history.

Besides its abundant open spaces, Chicago is also known as the country's railroad capital. Currently, it has numerous passenger trains and more major railroads than any other place in the U.S. Various industrial and geographical factors made it attractive to many railroad companies.

This city is also the central hub for business people, resident commuters, and travelers. It has many stunning attractions and activities to do, as well as one-of-a-kind venues, amenities, and services for every industry. And if you’re scouting for a lecture space in Chicago, there are plenty of options to consider. You can choose from small rooms to large halls or lecture theaters.

Lecture Space Options in Chicago

Since a lot of teaching happens in a lecture room, it should provide an environment for learning and collaboration. To achieve that, you’ll need certain elements to transform an empty room into a functional Chicago lecture space.

  • Audio-visual Equipment
    Projectors, interactive boards, laptops, internet access, and other technology are a must to promote learning. If your lecture room still doesn’t have any of these tools and equipment, consult with a knowledgeable IT expert or AV technician in Chicago.

  • Seating
    Lecture seating is often arranged in sloping tiers. This way, spectators can conveniently see over people's heads in front. Aside from the arrangement, it’s essential to emphasize comfort, as it impacts the learners’ productivity.

  • Lighting
    Lighting installations for auditoriums and lecture halls can be pretty tricky. Lighting control is crucial, while flexible lighting is necessary. Natural light is also essential, as it helps participants concentrate and perform better. Therefore, discuss with a lighting specialist in Chicago to design a plan to maximize lighting in your lecture area.

  • Ventilation and Temperature
    Any large room intended for meetings or gatherings should have proper ventilation, heating, and an air conditioning system. No one wants to sit in a stuffy and hot lecture room, and you wouldn’t be able to concentrate in a cold room, especially during winters. Seek expert advice from an HVAC expert in Chicago to create a perfect environment conducive to learning.
