The project is a renovation of a house designed and built by John Black Lee in 1956. The original house has a spirit of experimentation; the geometry of the house is simple and rigorous. The objective of the renovation is to respect the original intent and spirit of the house, and to renovate and rejuvenate it so that it can continue to function as a family house. It was a strong desire of both the client and the architect to preserve this particular moment in the architectural history of New Canaan, and to give it an extended life to continue the legacy that it deserves.
