Locating the fireplace at the north end next to the entrance is typical of FLW. Look at the relationship of entrance to living room at Taliesin; the fireplace isn't at the far end of the room, but right next to the entrance, like Oboler. All of the trinity room houses have the same arrangement.

It seems to me that this is correct from the point of view of the house's layout. It sounds safe and somehow more logical. I read on the website of firefighters firerecruitmentaustralia.com.au that such layouts help people survive in dangerous situations and simplify the work of rescuers and firefighters when it is necessary to take children out of the building, and so on. Did you know about this? If I hadn't been interested in articles about rescuers and people of dangerous professions, I'd never have found out about this. It's helpful to learn something new every day. I advise you to read and study more.
