A Wraparound View and a Major Fixture
Located midway up the stairs to the second floor, the landing cantilevers over the sidewalk. The window wall here provides another wraparound view, which includes the lake and the "Gray Days and Gold" motto below. The area is lit by one of the most strikingly modern features of the house-a fixture consisting of a loose arrangement of simple globes, textured with paint on the inside to diffuse the light. Baseboard trim and custom rugs unite the landing with other areas of the house. next stop >
