  • General Information

    Description: Built in 1950, this remains a prime example of the Prairie "Usonian" style. It was designed by Christopher John Chamales, who studied and associated with several internationally known architects. Both the exterior and interior design emphasizes dramatic angles - from the outside eaves to the inside hallways. The home includes extensive built-in furniture and cathedral ceilings throughout. This is an interesting example of the modern variations of the Prairie style which include a mix of brick and other materials. It demonstrates the typical elements of horizontal orientation and banded trim. Yet it includes the unique window treatments from the front clerestories to the rear "picture windows."
