Vogt House

-A A +A
1889. 800 N. Van Buren St.

There is a do-it-yourself design quality in the porch with its extended turreted pavilion; it seems to exist in a different world from the roofscape, which has the appearance of a professional, subdued design. The two-story brick-sheathed volume of the house acts as a neutral ground upon which the roof and the porch can act.
