Jeff's Blog - Wednesday, July 4, 2018 - Emil Bach House, in Chicago, Illinois

Frank Lloyd Wright designed and built the Emil Bach House in 1915 in Chicago, Illinois for the co-owner of the Bach Brick Company. The house is cube-shaped, with strong geometry. It's 2700 square-feet, but didn't seem that large to me, but I think much of the house was off-limits to tours since it's still available as a rental.

Here are some photos of the exterior

The ground floor is shown below. It consists of an entryway, a living room with a dining area around the corner, a kitchen, and some areas off limits to the tour.

Upstairs was a bedroom with a balcony, plus other areas that were too small to photograph with the tour group, or areas off limits.
