Ulrich Franzen’s Dana House is a Mid-Century Marvel in Connecticut

With the explosion of popularity in mid-century style, there is no shortage of information and reproductions of some of the most popular styles from that era. But not many people will have the chance to live in a house from one of the foremost architects of the mid-century design movement. This house in New Caanan, Connecticut was designed by German-born architect Ulrich Franzen. Many of Franzen's buildings have been described as "fortresslike" and this home, known as The Dana House, could certainly fit that bill. Take a look inside the brick building, which covers 5685 square feet (528 square meters), and get a first hand perspective of this respected architect's contributions.
