This sprawling, modernized Mediterranean-style home in Deerfield, Illinois, is stylishly stripped of excess ornamentation but still statement-making. Multiple rooflines topped with dark barrel tile entertain the eye and break up the pale symmetrical massing. Segmental arches line the loggia and define window openings, and a Palladian arched entry offers a disruptive kick.
