Modernist Rafael Viñoly Creation For Sale in Connecticut

New, 1 comment

Rafael Viñoly, he who likes his Sundays with a side of dull, is the man behind this extremely un-dull Ridgefield, Conn., house, which was built in 1990 and subsequently contained the massive, A-list art collection of a wealthy widow until she donated the property to Fairfield University. Viñoly designed the 9,700-square-foot structure as two separate wings—one for guests and another for the homeowners—conjoined by a sleek concrete/glass indoor pool area. The minimalist manse may have views of the countryside from its five-acre hilltop but it's only got two bedrooms. Does the starchitecture stamp justify the $3.2M pricetag?
