Originally conceived for Ted (a classmate of Barnes at Harvard) and Kathy (sister of Rufus Stillman and a patron of Marcel Breuer on multiple Litchfield homes) Marsters, the house sits on a grid of rectangular indoor and outdoor rooms. Barnes graduated from Harvards Graduate School of Design in 1942, studying under Breuer and Walter Gropius. Barnes founded his own firm in 1949 and had a prolific career until his passing in 2004, as both a practitioner and teacher of architecture (Harvard, Pratt and the University of Virginia). He is well known for his design of art museums around the country, including the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and the Dallas Museum in Texas. His residential work, including a platform house design of his personal residence, was the subject of a recent exhibit at the Katonah (New York) Museum of Art, which he also designed. The American Institute of Architects awarded him the AIA Gold Medal, its highest honor. The property consists of 9-plus acres and has many original details still in use, including a white concrete pool and a standalone four-car garage, the latter emulating the home, which was designed to blend in with a natural environment that includes gardens and large trees. Original interior features include cork flooring, a heated slate floor living room, cabinetry, shelving and a dining table designed by Barnes for the house.
