Transitional Prairie

As the Prairie style continued to gain popularity, more contemporary elements were incorporated into the design. Larger, corner glass elements, bands of high, horizontal windows, rectilinear chimneys and massing forms, were incorporated in order to create the relationship of mass and void within this Transitional Prairie style vernacular. Deeper overhangs and standing seam metal roofs compliment this style.
