Country Estate is a restoration and expansion of the Wiley House, an original mid-century modern residence by architect Philip Johnson. This project integrates new structures into the tranquil Connecticut setting with contextually respectful design and a commitment to conservation strategies. A new barn was constructed to function as a gallery for the expansive art collection of the new owner. The barn’s solid black exterior reinforces the architectural clarity of the original glass house while serving as a counterpoint to its transparency. The new pool house and garage are both set into the hillside with a single exposed wall recalling the plinth of the original house. A small circular pool centers the composition as a small nod to Philip Johnson’s iconic geometric gesturalism.
