In addition, there are four layered brick wall with a coping of Sandstone, which are adjacent to the stairs. The corners of the piers determined from the dark glazed brick, the motif is repeated in a horizontal band across the second-floor Windows and projecting brick cornice that visually divides the first and second stories. This emphasis on horizontality is achieved through overcoming challenges and polychromed brickwork is a key element of the architecture of the Prairie school, the first time Frank Lloyd Wright and his contemporaries. The interior continues to show the influence of Wright on geometric and floral motifs laid on the columns and pilasters". The flat roof and the second floor stairs, as well as decorations inside and outside lend themselves to the Prairie.
