About 10 minutes from the Grand Rapids in eastern Michigan lies a stark white cubic home along a lush, 10-acre field with nary another residence in sight. Built in 1991, the structure consists of clean, geometric lines that intersect along the exterior of its expansive windows and teak decks to break up the bold shape. The designer, Dirk Lohan, used the same familiar forms and elements as his modernist predecessor, Mies van der Rohe—his grandfather and mentor.

Each room is laden with a glass wall measuring in either 12 to 16 feet in length, recalling the Mies's love for an abundance of natural lighting entering his minimal framework. The 3,200-square-foot space holds three bedrooms, living and dining rooms, which all have outdoor access provided by the decks, in addition to the accessible rooftop area that tops the four stories. The Midwestern space is asking for $1.2 million.
