Claude and Starck
The Adolph H. Kayser house was designed by Claude and Starck, a local architectural firm that would later become the foremost practitioner of the Prairie School style in Madison. The design of the Kayser house is a distinctive blend of classical details, then very popular, and the broad horizontal lines and simple massing of the Prairie School, which was just coming into vogue. Kayser was a prominent Madison lumber dealer who also served as mayor of Madison from 1914 to 1916.
