What Houzz contributors are saying:

Wright exploited the view, and Robie's desire for sunlight and to look at his neighbors, through expansive glass walls facing south. In this straight-on view of the south elevation, the house's three levels can be grasped: Just below street level is the billiard room, playroom and garage (out of frame to the right); the raised first level is where the living and dining rooms, kitchen and servants' quarters are located; the smaller third floor with bedrooms caps the building.On the left side of the third floor is the chimney, one of the most important elements in Wright's residential architecture, Prairie and later. As we'll see, the hearth on the first two floors serves to break up the expansive open plans.
