The Miller Residence by architect Eero Saarinen










Originally commissioned by Indiana based, modern architecture patron, J. Irwin Miller and his wife in 1953, and designed by famed architect Eero Saarinen, the classic modernist Miller residence was declared a National Landmark in 2000 and finally became the property of Indianapolis Museum of Art after Miller’s wife, Xenia Simons Miller passed away there in 2008.
Saarinen ensured the Miller’s home design was based around entertaining their important guests, with the installation of a huge sunken conversation pit in the lavish central living area. Four other private areas spoke from this hospitality hot spot, for adults, children, guests, and house servants plus kitchen and laundry utilities.
