Overlooking the park outside and disconnecting with the landscape when necessary the house offers best of both worlds. A curated art collection and comfy modern décor complete this Kansas City home where life feels breezy and beautiful!
An old three-story Victorian house in the is a wonderful example of how even the most dreary space can be turned into a cheerful contemporary home using the right infusion of light!
Brought in to radically alter the damp and dark interior of this classic home Glen Thomas Architecture turned to a contemporary extension with a distinct 9-meter long glass roof to get the job done.
Designed by Cheng Franco Arquitectos it is the innovative use of corten steel panels for the upper cantilevered levels that catches your attentions instantly. The steel panels give the holiday home a dynamic colorful and texturally vibrant exterior even as concrete acts as the more stoic counterpart.
It is a curated balance of the natural and the man-made with the central courtyard acting as the common social zone. Flanked by the public and private wings of the house on one side and an outdoor living area along with a series of fruit trees on the other the courtyard is both spacious and secluded.
As the day passes and seasons wax and wane the interior changes ever so subtly because of varying natural light even as the rest of the home remains distinctly minimal and stoic. Sporadically used arm wooden surfaces gently interrupt this concrete monotony while blue accents make a rare appearance in the bedroom.
With large glass windows that bring ample sunlight during winter months and a system of shades that can easily switch between privacy and unabated views this four-bedroom family farmhouse proves to be incredibly adaptable.
