Custom Home On The Links

This dramatic cafe-style home features extensive exterior millwork (seen on the previous page). This “upside-down” home positions its primary and public areas on the top-most floor, capturing stunning views all across Indian Hills Country Club and Golf Course.

Madison Residence

Kansas City, Missouri

Architect: Hermanos Design

Photography: Aaron Dougherty

1675 Madison is a three-bedroom residential renovation within a century-old masonry building in the Westside North neighborhood of Kansas City. The original building typology consisted of apartment dwellings on the second level for shop owners and patrons. The renovated space, comprising a new stairway and elevator to access the second level, features stair treads, shelves and louvered screens of repurposed wood from the original building.

Trolley Trail House

Kansas City, Missouri

Architect: McHenry Shaffer Architecture

Photography: Nate Sheets

At just 1,800 square feet, the design prioritizes personalized, right-sized living spaces and a constant connection to the outdoors via direct views or glimpses of sky through high windows. The inverted truss roof structure allows for superior insulation depth and sets up an indirect lighting strategy with north-facing clerestory windows, providing soft, ambient light throughout the home. 

The L-shaped floor plan puts the wooded backyard and Trolley Trail on center stage, with views from all rooms directed toward the historic path. Deep overhangs and a wood deck wrap the home from the front porch around to the private yard and stone patio with a fire pit.
