Designed by Richard Meier & Partners Architects and completed in 1973, the 3,000-square-foot (279-square-meter) Douglas House was built on an eight-acre (three-hectare) waterfront site on Lake Michigan. It has been restored twice – most recently by current owners Michael McCarthy and Marcia Myers over a 10-year period. Today, it is one of a handful of iconic residences that defines the modern architectural experience – with a future as bright as its whiter-than-white hue.
