A contemporary renovation and the extension of the Lookout House which is based in Fairfield Country, Connecticut, are completed designed by Ike Kligerman Barkley Architects. The architect’s client chose to retain the eccentric 1979 structure of the property and commissioned a gut renovation and the extension.
This house is originally has a pyramid shaped, centered on an open-plan double-height living space which is surrounding an indoor swimming pool, then by the architect it is lightened and simplified with a contemporary material palette including bamboo, bluestone and a glass tile, and a new lighting program. The master suite is connected with the main house by a glass bridge-an “architectural synapse” which is clearly differentiates old from new. Just like the original structure, the new suite is a large volume which is enclosing a smaller one, in this case, a freestanding cube which is finished in claro walnut, divides the sleeping and bathing areas.
