American practice Roger Ferris and Partners have designed an expansion to a mid-century modern residence located in New Canaan, Connecticut. According to the architects, “This project expands the program of the original Wiley house, a mid-century modern residence by Philip Johnson, to integrate new structures into the spectacular setting of the house with a design rooted in respectful contextual response and a commitment to conservation strategies. The new art gallery, pool house and garage reinforce the architectural clarity of the original glass house. The art gallery, a reconstructed 19th century barn offers a solid black contemporary counterpoint to Johnson’s transparent house. The pool house and garage are both set into the hillside with a single exposed wall recalling the plinth of the original house.”
