Robert Lamp House, Frank Lloyd Wright 1903. Madison, Wisconsin.


Located in the center of Madison, the Robert Lamp House was built just a few blocks from Wisconsin's state capitol. 

The landmark plack in front of the house reads:

Robert Lamp House

1903

This unusual midblock residence was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for his boyhood friend, "Robie" Lamp, a realtor and insurance salesman. The simple, boxy shape of the house, with its open floor plan, was very modern for the time. Wright called it "New American" in style. While the diamond paned casement windows were "Old English" in inspiration. The penthouse on the roof is a later addition, replacing an elegant roof garden complete with grape arbors and a greenhouse. Please respect the privacy of the residents.

Designated January 28, 1976
