The entire east wall is comprised of LaCantina's Aluminum Thermally Controlled Stacking Multi Slide Door Systems, which drench the interior of the home in natural light every morning and offers incredible views of the tidal landscape.

Trolley House takes the topography of its site into consideration by carefully balancing the house on concrete piers that allow flood waters to pass underneath, as well as LaCantina’s operable glass doors that perfectly frame hushed views of the Farm Creek estuary and the greater Long Island Sound.

The influence of the owners’ occupations, he an architect and she an artist, can be felt throughout Trolley House. The house features a geometric order that frames the artist’s whimsical touch.

The Trolley House sits on a narrow spit of land outside Norwalk, CT. The total lot size is about 500-feet long by only 25-feet wide.
