Best known for his earthy umber and ocher buildings with exaggerated classical references and a little proportional fun, this stark white modern”ish” cube designed by Michael Graves will come as a surprise. This was Michael Graves first architectural commission. And just from the glimpse you can see from the street, it looks as great now as I assume it looked over 40 years ago – especially in the Indiana autumn with the leaves providing the color. I really want to walk up those stairs…

The house is on a heavily wooded corner lot. In the winter with the leaves off the trees the side facade would be visible from the street.
