Renovation Gives 1960s Connecticut Home Airy New Look

Let this humble but satisfying renovation of a 1960s house in New Milford, Connecticut be further proof that glass walls can do wonders. Completed by New York City-based architect Donald Billinkoff, the project involves his Billinkoff's own home, which used to look like one big block of cement. As Contemporist explains, the first order of business was getting rid of the small, horizontal cut outs, in favor floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the open interiors with natural light.

For a cleaner, more modern look, the architect also covered the original fireplace behind a new concrete block screen. And just off the dining room, a glazed 600-square-foot deck added for extra, breezy entertaining space. Check out the full story and gallery here.
