Conjured up and brought to life by Reinach Mendonça Arquitetos Associados this is a holiday and weekend home for a modern family that creates a cozy alchemy of modern comfort and natural goodness.
With a sloped lot and a hilly rear yard the house also presented a unique opportunity to add a steel catwalk that connects the newly added penthouse level directly with the rear yard. This turns the gorgeous backyard into a private and relaxing retreat even as the living area on the top floor offers unabated views of the city skyline and welcomes a healthy dose of natural ventilation indoors.
Throughout the home one finds a healthy blend of neutral backgrounds vivacious color brilliant artwork and an ambiance that combines casual design elements with a hint of urbane sophistication. Bespoke décor inviting outdoor areas and a lovely backyard complete this unpretentious yet brilliant Kansas City home.
Thanks to the U-shaped structure of the residence the homeowners enjoy complete privacy as they spend time in the courtyard even as the street façade keeps away prying eyes. A separate living area for guests and the master suite are also integrated visually with the rear yard. Warm lighting adds another layer of intrigue to this California home that breaks away from the mundane.
A gabled roof and the brilliant use of skylights create spacious light-filled living spaces where one flows into the next effortlessly. A neutral color scheme and an inherent industrial vibe that comes with the extensive use of metal complete the hip makeover.
