Minimalism Done Right

Glass/Wood House
Kengo Kuma and Associates

The true beauty of minimalism is expressed in this private residence located in New Canaan, Connecticut.  Completed in 2010, this roughly 3800 sq. foot project was designed as an addition to a strictly symmetrical mid-century modern home.

A dramatic glass walkway links the old and new structures.

The architect's goal was to create the allusion that the old and new structures had been "fused" together by nature.

With very few walls, steel screens and carefully designed glass walkways guide circulation and frame the surroundings.

Attention to detail and materiality played a crucial role in seamlessly jointing to two structures.

Minimalism at its finest.
