The Douglas House is another unique architectural structure designed by Richard Meier. It is located in an isolated site that slopes down to Lake Michigan. The house is a lone man-made structure amidst nature. Due to the downward slope, the house must be entered at roof level. The house is built from reinforced concrete and contains many windows and skylights to let in the natural light. The house is four stories and there are staircases located both inside and outside of the house. The different horizontal layers of the house reflect the horizontals of the lake’s surface, the horizon, and the shoreline.
