West Side Residence
Single-Family Residential, Architecture + Interiors
This distinctive modern home was designed for a young couple who moved back home to Kansas City from Portland, Oregon, to start and raise a family. Not wanting to leave their urban life behind, they selected a historic and demographically diverse neighborhood on the west edge of Kansas City’s downtown loop.
The couple wanted a minimalist, modern house that would serve as a quiet container for their family and a backdrop for one of the owner’s artistic endeavors. The shifted boxes that form the Kansas City home are comprised of a simple palette of textures and tones, including raw structural steel, a warm grey corrugated metal, a concrete plinth and Brazilian redwood.
