Madison – Milwaukee

#104. Eugene A. Gilmore Residence (1908)
Madison, Wisconsin

The house is nicknamed the “airplane house”, perhaps due to the triangular angled porch that sits under the large rectangular overhang. (a) The small porches represent a break in Wright’s consistent rectangular and octagonal grid. The second floor entrance was an addition by Howard and Nelle Weiss in 1928 (b), since visitors had to originally enter through the basement on the ground level and take the stairs up to the living room.
