Historic 1953 Philip Johnson house with a spectacular new companion structure inspired by the Barcelona Pavilion. Philip Johnson's Alice Ball House, which has been called "a liveable version of the Glass House," was designed in 1953. This airy two-bedroom jewel on New Canaan's Oenoke Ridge, will gain a second structure—an elegant, three-bedroom house nestled into the landscape. The horizontal lines and planes of the new residence are inspired by Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe's Barcelona Pavilion, a seminal building that has inspired many modern architects. Philip Johnson designed the Ball House as a modest one-story house with a site plan that gives the house the feeling of a romantic garden villa or a little pavilion in the woods. The new residential structure and the historic house will harmonize as one composition with minimal structure, transparent walls, a floating wall, and long vistas that help blur the borders between inside and outside. The newer structure will feature generous living space and a large sky-lit underground garage with enough space for a collection of cars or an expansive studio. Landscaping— including native grasses and wild flowers, stone walls, tumble gravel, and pervious pavers will enhance the courtyard space between the two structures. Interior options and configurations can be customized. Internationally known Bakh Design interprets the masters of modern design with a contemporary vision.
