"The Douglas House is once again in pristine form, actually better than ever, due to loving care. It is abundantly clear that the house is both of its time and yet has its own timeless quality. Today it could neither be conceived as it was or built the way it was. The site never should have been built on and yet, it was. And fortunately both gems are preserved."
"Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, Richard Meier’s Douglas House is perhaps his most well-known residential work. Its striking modern design and stark white form contrast with its dramatic natural hillside setting overlooking Lake Michigan. It’s among the country's most significant modern residential designs."
