In today’s Friday Eye Candy, we look at a Connecticut house built in 1968 that was rehabbed and renovated by architecture firm Billinkoff Architecture. Our favorite addition was the screened porch that is as large as some one-bedroom apartments in DC.

From the architect:

Like every client’s project, cost influenced decisions and compromises had to be made along the way. But the primary goals of opening up the interior and maximizing views to the landscape were achieved.

The slotted windows at the front of the house were replaced with floor-to-ceiling glass. To open up the house, full-height partitions at the entry and around the kitchen were removed exposing the stair to the lower level. In the kitchen, east facing floor-to-ceiling windows replaced the small slotted windows above what was once a small eating area. Economical finishes were used to both reduce cost and lend the house a casual contemporary feel. A 600 square foot screen porch adjacent to the dining room was added.
