The new Joseph and Anni Albers gallery in Connecticut by Eoghan Hoare

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Article source: Eoghan Hoare 

The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation in Bethany is one of Connecticut’s best-kept secrets. Nestled in the woods, it’s a magnet for pilgrims of the Bauhaus keen to learn more about the German émigrés who were among the school’s most inspiring teachers. Featuring paintings, furniture and textiles produced by the pair throughout their long careers, the foundation has now put on permanent display never-seen-before furniture and textiles, accumulated over the past 40 years.

Weston Residence in Weston, Connecticut by Specht Harpman Architects

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

Article source: Specht Harpman Architects

The Weston Residence nestles in a valley adjacent to the Saugatuck River.  In plan and section, the elements of the house engage the site in a way that purposefully blurs the transition and distinction between the built and natural environment.

Ground at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut by Bentel and Bentel Architects

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Article source:  Bentel and Bentel Architects

The new ‘Ground’ cafe, at Yale’s Marcel Breuer-designed Becton School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (‘SEAS’), serves not only to create social cohesion among faculty and students of the engineering school, but also to encourage interaction between and among members of other departments in the University. In the design, the firm engaged the unadorned poured-concrete volume of this former seminar room by layering a palette of walnut planks, perforated aluminum, and cleft bluestone over the walls, floor, and ceiling of the space. The original concrete surfaces are intentionally visible through, and are highlighted by, the veils of the material intervention out of respect for Breuer’s unique exploration in his design of the textural possibilities of a single material.

MODERN BARN in Wilton, Connecticut by Specht Harpman Architects

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Article source: Specht Harpman Architects

This weekend retreat was designed for a couple who are actively engaged in the arts—he as a Broadway producer, she as a fashion editor. The architects were commissioned to reconstruct a historic gambrel hay barn which had been partially destroyed in a catastrophic fire, and to re-think the interior to become a new house for the couple and their two Labrador retrievers. The barn is one of several buildings which were once part of a working dairy farm.

New Canaan Residence in Connecticut by Specht Harpman Architects

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Article source: Specht Harpman Architects

The New Canaan Residence is nestled into a lush hilltop site in this forested part of Connecticut. The house was designed to engage the landscape and immerse the occupants in the full range of environments that the site offers. What the completed house doesn’t show is its modest beginnings: this is a renovation of a 1950’s house which had a series of unsympathetic additions from the 60’s and 70’s, and whose owners originally wanted only a kitchen upgrade.

Water House in Coastal Connecticut by Newick Architects

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Article source: Newick Architects
Photographs: Robert Benson Photography

Located on an extraordinary coastal Connecticut site, this house sits at the edge of Long Island Sound. A four bedroom, simple plan, 1950’s ranch existed on the site when the project began. Its proximity to the water would not have been replicable if not for the existing condition. A sixty foot long window wall, eight feet high now offers an unobstructed view of the Sound. The colors and materials of the interior range from grey to white and have surface reflectivity that ranges from matte to reflective.

Connecticut Pool House in Sharon, Connecticut by Resolution: 4 Architecture (designed with FormZ and Vectorworks)

Friday, October 28th, 2011

Article source: 4 Architecture

Located in a natural clearing within a wooded hillside of northwestern CT, this watering hole serves as a sustainable entertainment and relaxation center from the hectic urban existence, a place to go from always being “on”, to actually shutting “off” for a bit – a place to simply chill out.  The 16 x 52 module contains a sleeping zone at one end of the module, and a food prep  consumption digestion zone at the other.  In between sits a recycled black-steel core, a volume containing the bathroom, steam shower, laundry, storage, and a heat-generating fireplace.  Although ‘floating’ in the middle of the space and not connected to a perimeter wall, the core is filled with natural light from a skylight above and frosted glass pocket doors; an outdoor shower brought indoors.

18.36.54 residence in Connecticut by SDL

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

Article source: SDL

The living space of this Connecticut residence is formed by a spiraling ribbon of 18 planes, defined by 36 points connected by 54 lines. This pure and dynamic architectural form generates distinctive interior spaces while dramatically framing both near and distant landscape scenes.  Large glass planes virtually disappear within the ribbon, allowing unimpeded picturesque views of 18th century hay meadows and giant oaks. Circulation through kitchen, living, dining, and sleeping areas is seamless and free-flowing, as is the distinction between interior and exterior space.  Challenging both traditional and modern notions of “the house in the landscape,” this design gives nothing of itself up to its natural setting, but selectively incorporates the elements therein for the enhancement of both house and landscape.
