Wilt Chamberlain's house is an interesting mix of Wright, Lautner, and Goff influences woven by its architect David Tenneson Rich. It looks as if it has been "updated", thus losing a little of its texture and color to staid greys.

I corresponded with him many years ago...a very down to earth man.

Jockey Willie Shoemaker was a close friend of Chamberlain's, so Wilt had furniture designed to accommodate Willie's diminutive size.
