In a Westport waterfront house, modernism breathes anew
If you had to find a label for this house, it would be Retro Modern. It’s a deliberate throwback to the era when crisp, simple, flat-roofed houses were all the rage in the world of architecture. Such houses are now unfashionable in some quarters, and a lot of them are being torn down. The Westport house reminds us of how wonderful this kind of architecture can be.
