Day House 1965 | New Canaan, CT | Architect: John Black Lee | Photo: Pedro E. Guerrero
In 1957, Lafayette Page III sold an unimproved parcel to Lee G. Day, Jr., who later commissioned modernist architect John Black Lee to design a house to be built on the site for his family. By 1965, the house was completed. The parcel and house stayed in the Day family until Conway M. Day sold the property to Gary and Judith Witkin in 1992. John Black Lee designed the Day House with a Palladian-influenced plan and siting and rich finishes at the interior and exterior, marking it as a high-style example of mid-century Modern residential design. Despite minor changes, the house retains a very high degree of integrity at both the interior and exterior.Source: archdaily.com | preservationnation.org
