Location: Overland Park — Kansas City, Kansas
I found a corner infill lot in an already established neighborhood on the edge of a 40' ravine. People thought the lot was pretty much unbuildable so it sat for years. I came across the lot and decided I could build up and make it work. I ended up building a 3 story modern home with a rooftop deck overlooking the ravine with downtown views.
I am a young graphic designer with no architecture background but have always loved modern style and architecture. I used my graphic design programs (illustrator & Photoshop) to design this 3000 square foot modern home. I did research both locally and online to generate some ideas for my house. The home has 3 bedrooms, a loft, 4 bathrooms, 4 decks. This house was featured in KC Home Design Magazine in Feb 2009 and won the silver medal in the KCHD Design Excellence Awards for modern architecture the same year.
