It is an elegant and comfortable home nestled into the clearing of a lush forest in New Canaan, Connecticut. New Canaan Residence is designed by Specht Architects to engage the complexity and beauty of the house surrounding landscape. This house is full of broad expanses of glass that offering an ever-changing view of natural splendor.
This house has a long, low from that embracing the winding drive through the trees to an open hilltop court. As one moves inside the entrance on the second level of the house, elegant glass walls can give a floating feeling in the treetops. The canopy of the forest enfolds the house interior and also creates a serene space.
This house is designed with broad expanses of glass to provide the inhabitants and their guests an awesome views of natural splendor. This splendor changes as the abundant deciduous trees perform their seasonal magic every year. This way makes the house ideal to be used as a retreat with family and friends.
There is a staircase tucked behind a free-standing limestone fireplace. The cozy nature around this house is carved in the earth and also giving onto the floor of the forest. This nature looks different and also contrasts with the expansive and light-filled level above.
