About Madlener House
A masterpiece of early 20th century residential architecture, Madlener House was built in 1901–02 and is the work of architect Richard E. Schmidt and designer Hugh M. G. Garden. In 1905 Architectural Record, called the house "exceptional" in its interior design. After a century, Madlener House stands out as an unusually successful amalgamation of tradition and innovation in architecture, a harmonious reflection of its time and place. In its compact, cubic massing the house is related to the German neoclassical work of Karl Friedrich Schinkel and his followers in Berlin, but in many of its details it clearly reveals the influence of Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright.
