Gino Rossetti founded his namesake firm in 1969 in Detroit and built a name for the company through sleek, modern sports arenas like the Palace of Auburn Hills. You can see elements of that in the stylish pad he designed for himself in Grosse Pointe Park, listed through Sotheby’s International Realty for $1.98 million.

Built in 1977, the 4,700-square-foot home has some striking Art Moderne features, like the circular forms, ample wood panelling, and skylights. On almost every floor, there’s playful layers and levels, and a spiral staircase.

It’s got five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and seems designed for entertaining. There’s a swimming pool, a wine cellar, a wet bar, a “conversation” pit, and overall just seems like it would be a fascinating place to hang out. The home also faces Lake Saint Claire and has unobstructed views of the water from many of its wall-length windows and decks.
