DENVER RAILS PICTURE OF THE DAY FOR 10/09/2018
The poured concrete water table and the belt courses (one of which acentuates the window sills) wrap around and visually emphasize the low-slung, horizontal profile found in some contemporaneous structures of the late 19th- and early 20th-century. Featuring horizontal lines, flat or hipped roofs with broad overhanging eaves, windows grouped in horizontal bands and using solid construction and craftsmanship that emphasized the structure and materials and discipline in the use of ornament. This so-called "Prairie House" style was an integration with and was evoking the prairie landscape - a uniquely American architectural style. Note the intricate raised brick-work using dark bricks for added design.
