New Canaan Residence
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.
