This striking residence was designed circa 1964 by H.P. Davis "Deever" Rockwell, an architect who studied at the Illinois Institute of Technology and worked in the office of Mies van der Rohe. Rockwell later helped found the firm Brenner Danforth Rockwell with Daniel Brenner and George Danforth; their notable projects include the renovation of the Madlener House (for the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts), the National Design Center in Marina City, and the first Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.

20841 Oak Lane Drive was designed in 1964 by H.P. Davis "Deever" Rockwell—who once worked in the office of Mies van der Rohe—for his family. It's located in Olympia Fields, IL, outside Chicago. It's currently on the market for $619,000. To schedule a showing, and discover more homes in your area, head to Dwell Homes.
