New Canaan Residence

Perched amongst old-growth trees, this 2010 house is a mid-century modern beacon. By creating unassuming but direct paths into the dramatic glass entryway, Specht Harpman designed the house to welcome its owners and their visitors into what feels like a floating pavilion in the tree canopy. The swimming pool area and separate cabana emphasize the project’s strong lines and classically modern roots.
