As one of a pair of contemporary West Plaza homes, this home was developed by a visionary who purchased the property to bring a new style of housing to Kansas City. The goal was to maximize and utilize the site with elemental design, clean forms and amazing views of the Country Club Plaza skyline, all while providing elegant and unique interior spaces.
The team’s greatest challenge was that they had two sloping lots and very little land on which to build.Though sparse, the lots allowed for a spacious basement with a three-car garage and mudroom, which is uncommon on narrow lots like these.
A three-story open steel staircase ascends through an open-concept, double-height dining space, modern kitchen and living room, with an impressive balcony for entertaining. The third floor has an uninterrupted layout, flowing around a two-way fireplace connecting the primary bedroom and bath with an incredible walk-in shower lined with clerestory windows.
The exterior is just as impressive as the interior, and the top level was designed with a rooftop bar, a game room and a terrace. An elevator links all four floors of living for ease of accessibility.
