Ann and Curt host a lakeside dining experience at their home. The Parcell House, Michigan’s only Paul Rudolph design, was built in 1970 and shaped out of stacked cubes and blocks with large glass windows. With a cocktail in hand, explore the triple height space, redwood interior, and enjoy the breathtaking and ever changing views through the giant lake facing windows. The home and Lake St. Clair frame the communal table on the lawn with dinner by Union Joints. Ladies, keep your sky high heels in the closet for this evening — we will be sitting outdoors.
