Situated in New Canaan, Connecticut, the New Canaan Residence was built in 2010 by Specht Harpman architects. Nestled in old-growth trees, the designers constructed direct but unassuming paths into the dramatic glass entryway which blends seamlessly into the woodland surroundings. The architects designed the house to welcome its owners and visitors into what feels like a floating pavilion in a canopy of trees, which incidentally looks a lot like Cameron’s dad’s house in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The swimming pool and outside area emphasize the clean lines and modernity of the design, as does the interior of the building which includes a bathroom that backs onto the bar. So you can eye up your next drink whilst you shower. Check out the inside and outside of the home in the gallery above.
