I find the screens separating the corridor from the room on the left to be very interesting. Allows light right the way through the house while still creating a separate space, rather than just having one giant area and no clear flow of traffic.
The house’s original owner and designer was John Black Lee, an architect affiliated with the so-called Harvard Five — a group of architects that included Philip Johnson and Marcel Breuer who began settling in New Canaan starting around 1940, transforming the town into a hotbed of Modernism. Lee’s axially symmetrical, one-story structure, was completed in 1956. After two prior architectural interventions, the latest alteration of the "Glass/Wood House" is by Kendo Kuma & Associates, Tokyo.
