Through our friend K'rel SonOf Isa we asked at the architecture firm Specht Harpman, permission to remodel in 3d to use it as the subject of our challenge in February 2014. To our great joy, the architect Harpam  has given his consent, and Karel SonOf Isa was put to work immediately for the construction of the 3d model.
Their project  New Canaan Residence that is a new modern residence  is nestled into a lush hilltop site in the Connecticut woods. Perched amongst old-growth trees, this 2010 house is a mild-century modern beacon. By creating unassuming but direct paths into the dramatic glass entryway.
Specht Harpman designed the house to welcome its owners and their visitors into what feels like  a floating pavillon in the tree canopy. The swimming pool area and separate cabana emphasize the project's strong lines and classically modern roots
