Copper moldings and gutters, multi-paned windows and the steeply pitched gabled entrance typify Rowland's Gothic designs. The interior is distinguished by Pewabic tile fireplaces and fishponds The school's namesake, Lewis E. Maire, was a prominent ophthalmologist who served on the Grosse Pointe Boards of Education and Health as well as the village board of supervisors.
