Modern Home Tour Darien & New Canaan, Connecticut.

 Sunday May 20th, 2012 turned out to a perfect sunny day for the William Pitt Sotheby’s Third Annual Modern House tour of mid-century moderns. There were 8 homes on tour some for sale (see below) and some just open to the public for the day. The homes were designed by well known architects such as the famous New Canaan “Harvard Five” and Frank Lloyd Wright’s top apprentice John Howe. Five of the homes were in New Canaan, one in each of Darien, Wilton and Weston.

In general the homes represented certain modern architectural principles such as:

  • Large glass windows and wall to bring the outside in.
  • Open easy flow floor plans.
  • Lots of natural light provided by the expansive windows and multiple skylights.
  • The building was designed to fit the naturally into the features of the landscape.
  • A multitude of mixed materials from stucco, natural stone, exotic woods and natural textured wall covering from grass to gilded surfaces.
