The house appeared in the 1986 John Hughes movie, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, where it was the fictional home of Ferris' best friend, Cameron Frye (played by Alan Ruck). In the famous scene, Cameron sends his father's Ferrari flying through the glass garage, into the forest below.

The house was designed by architects A. James Speyer and David Haid, both students of Mies van der Rohe. The home's steel and glass International Style shows Mies' influence, and the floor-to-ceiling windows provide 360-degree views of the surrounding woods.
