A ground source heat pump and a wood-fired boiler provide additional heating in the winter months while the smart system of shades ensure that there is absolutely no necessity of air conditioning in the summer months. Essentially this is a farmhouse that cuts back on power consumption and aims to reduce its carbon footprint as much as possible.
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.
An exposed brick wall section reclaimed pine cabinets and custom island in the kitchen and the dashing wooden dining table usher in plenty of textural contrast. White and gray shape much of the background with pops of red orange and blue enriching the home.
It is this continuous presence of brick that gives the addition its unique appeal even as the lovely clerestory windows above usher in a hint of modern industrial flair.
The deck becomes a part of the living room visual giving it a more expansive vibe. A contemporary kitchen with black island and cabinets adds contrast to the open living in white while sliding glass doors bring in a flood of natural light.
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!
