Designed by Gunnar Birkerts for Tom Monaghan at the height of his Wright obsession, 1984-1998.

I saw a drawing or two of the private quarters, somewhere: nice detailing, brick and stone and brass, maybe.

The outlandish quarter-mile structure is supposedly a "tower on its side." Monahan couldn't built a tower that high, so he went horizontal. The interiors, as one might expect from Birkerts, are very well done.
