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

This is part of my series of visits to buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

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.
