From a combination of current photographs, and historicalphotographs taken in 1909, Filtre Studio created a series of images that showthe Robie House dining room during various stages of the restoration process,from where it was when Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust acquired the houseto where it will be, fully restored, a year in the future.
They were about midway through the restoration, so we had to“deconstruct” the room to show the bare, beginning stage. We digitally removedthe custom rug, replacing it with a separately photographed oak floor. The wallfinishes were removed along with a built-in buffet that had already beenrestored. Then, we recreated the stages in between, adding back in the wallfinishes, rug, buffet and missing woodwork. Next, all of the furniture andlight fixtures were digitally added to show a fully "restored" dining room.
