This design, which represents one of the earliest works by internationally recognized architect Bruce Goff, stands in pronounced contrast to traditional residences of the period. Designed as the home and studio for artist Charles Turzak and his family, it incorporated many features that did not typically appear in residential architecture until more than a decade later, including a carport, corner picture windows, and overhanging balconies. Goff also designed the Bachman House, another Chicago Landmark.
