We are so lucky to have this architectural wonder in the heart of Fairfield County, CT. The Philip Johnson Glass House in New Canaan, CT is an experience for anyone who loves art, nature and beauty.

I suggest the longer guided tour, it is worth the extra money to visit each building on this amazing property.

You will learn about Philip Johnson’s career and his approach to design from a very knowledgeable tour guide.

Before you set out, here are some helpful tips.

  1. Consider watching this video prior to your visit… Philip Johnson: Diary of an Eccentric Architect
  2. Buy tickets a few weeks in advance, the tours are small, can’t spontaneously drop in.
  3. Meet at the visitor’s center (follow directions from when tickets are purchased.)
  4. Wear good walking shoes and know on a hot day the Glass House structure is like an oven inside.

While The Glass House is certainly inspiring for design ideas, I can help you with your New Canaan interior design projects with comfortable spaces and designer touches in just the right places. Contact me today to discuss your ideas and inspirations.
