Departing from the Modernist institutional designs that brought Edward Durell Stone international acclaim, the Johnson residence, with its wood and glass fa_ade and A-frame design, is no less significant than his large-scale public commissions. Stone’s organic blend of glass and wood is a welcome surprise to anyone entering the long, unremarkable driveway off of a cul-de-sac. Located in Darien, Connecticut, the open floor plan of Stone’s two-story design adds additional volume to the 2,300 square-foot, four bedroom, two bath residence. Stone’s generous use of glass on both levels of the house rarely allows its inhabitants to be disconnected from the 1.1 acre parcel the house sits on. An easy commute to New York City.
