Architecture

Located in a historic district of Leawood, Kansas, this home had plenty of charm but not enough living space. The ceiling joists were reshaped to create an extra 5-6 inches of space for the chandelier. The wine and coffee bar was moved into the living area to create more space in the kitchen, and the living room built-in shelving was removed to provide the owners with a wider variety of storage and design options. A coat closet was added by reclaiming part of the garage space and relocating the entry from the garage into the home. The main staircase was opened up, contributing to a more open feel. Relaid hardwood floors and a unified color palette reinforce the spacious feeling and tie the rooms together. An exterior portico entry was added to give the home a touch of additional character while maintaining the clean lines found throughout the interior of the home.
