MARCEL BREUER – STILLMAN HOUSE

The Stillman House in Litchfield, CT is one of three modern homes designed by Marcel Breuer in the 1950’s. In response to these homes being built, the conservative white people of Litchfield actually banned further use of the modern building style, as to not conflict with other colonial and Greek revival homes in the area. The interiors combine minimal geometric architectural forms with natural finishes and sensible modern furniture.

MARCEL BREUER – GARGARIN HOUSE

The Gargarin House in Litchfield, Connecticut, designed by Marcel Breuer in 1957, masterfully combines colors and materials in an expansive open plan. The warm wood tones harmonize with the terra cotta brick and leather sling back chairs in the living room, while in the kitchen, contrasting blue glass is used as a backsplash. Vast fieldstone walls can be seen inside and out, integrating the structure with the serene natural setting.
