The project scope for House in Connecticut II includes a renovation to the original house, a new addition that doubles the square footage, and a renovation to a poolhouse added in 1976. The original house was designed by Marcel Breuer in 1951 for himself and his family. The existing Breuer house contains the public programs of living, dining, family room and kitchen, and the new addition comprises the master bedroom suite and daughters' bedrooms, with utility space (garage and mud room) in the lower level. TMA's new addition is joined to the Breuer residence by a connecting stair enclosed in glass of varying transparency.
