Location: Darien, Connecticut
Built on the modified foundations of the original ‘50s structure, this striking wooden contemporary in Darien, CT was designed by Brooklyn firm su11 architecture+design, with structural engineering by Nathaniel Stanton of Craft. The exterior, marked by uniform timber siding and dramatic cantilevers and angles, can come off a bit intimidating at first glance, but there’s actually a surprisingly airy home inside, with big windows in all the right places.
The 6,832-square-foot spread prioritizes open living spaces. Once inside, you’ll find a seemingly endless sequence of entertaining areas, starting from a more formal living room with a fireplace to a cocktail lounge with a sleek, back-lit bar, to a spacious library/sitting area, and then finally down to an open cook’s kitchen and another lounge area. The house offers five bedrooms, all enveloped by tranquil woodland views.
