New Canaan Townhouse

This project has exquisite detail; the architect knows how to use materials. Volumetrically it is a hybrid, producing views from the inside of the house back to the outside., establishing a relationship between inside and out and making the inside interesting. On this very narrow, small lot, the architects found a way to form protection on the sides of the house. On the inside there is a certain crispness to detailing. The house almost has a human quality to it- with the outside “aggressive” and the inside open and generous. The interior is skillfully detailed even down to the window sills: the joining of materials is done well.
