The refurbishment that made this historic house in Connecticut contemporary

Built in 1931 by Dr. Richard Spector, this 600 square metre villa was brought back to life after renovation by Burçin Dinler, from Tasarimca Design Office. On a 1.2 hectare site in Connecticut, United States, this renovated mansion has been converted into a welcoming, contemporary and harmonious space.

The refurbishment process of Westport Villa took about a year. The interior design concept of this project has focused on enhancing the brightness of the spaces with a contemporary style based on the use of quality materials. These include Cosentino cladding, which was used for the bathroom and kitchen worktops.

A balanced colour range

All floors in the house are laid with white oak, except for the wet areas, the patios and the multimedia areas in the common area. This, together with the use of white predominantly on the walls and ceilings, makes the rooms look more spacious and enhances the large amount of natural light that the interiors receive through the large windows. In keeping with this range of neutral and light tones, the design team decided to use Silestone for the worktops. In particular, they opted for the Blanco Zeus colour in a polished finish. Its bright but restrained white colour blends perfectly with the modern lines of the interior design of the entire house. This material has been combined with dark furniture on the kitchen island and in one of the bathrooms, creating a very contemporary contrast.

Durable and sustainable

Among the reasons for the decision to use Silestone in this project, the architect highlights ‘its visual aesthetic integrity along with durability and hygiene factors’. The material is ideal for worktops as it is easy to clean and resistant to stains and dirt. ‘As part of this project, which has a modern and contemporary concept, the added value of Cosentino products was of paramount importance,’ he continues. Furthermore, the surfaces are in line with another key feature of the refurbishment project: sustainability. The whole project was intended to maintain a sustainable and integrated concept in the landscape. This also applies to the guesthouse, which was restored to blend in with the main house.
