Historic Florsheim Mansion Overview

Chicago architect Andrew Rebori designed this striking modern-art style building in 1938. Rounded glass blocks and horizontal lines define the exterior. Rebori built two houses on the lot and left an open courtyard to increase the sense of light and space. Current homeowner Russ Rosenzweig feels the choice of using glass brick provides privacy yet "floods [the room] with light, and it's like being inside a sculpture." Modern furniture and contemporary art accent the streamlined rooms. The home is one of the best examples of Chicago's architectural creativity and is available for your wedding celebration. Featuring a Steinway Grand Piano in the spacious living room, the main house offers a great floor plan for perfect entertaining. Upstairs features global fine art that your guests will love exploring as they celebrate your nuptials. Experience a unique and elegant wedding day at the Historic Florsheim Mansion.
