Equestrian Retreat

Paola, Kansas



Acres of scenic rolling terrain surrounds this Equestrian Retreat in Paola Kansas. Designed to maximize both indoor and outdoor living, the residence is laid out in a radial shape to envelope both front and back exterior courtyards that feel like large “outdoor living rooms” for entertaining guests.

Surrounded by mature trees, a clean sensibility of rustic Mediterranean style combines with rustic elements and large windows to strike a balance between old and new as the exterior needed to visually match the existing nearby barn and adjoined carriage-house built years previous by the clients.

All major rooms have light from two sides of the residence, unique for a home of this size. The large windows overlook spectacular surroundings, including a man-made pond at the back of the home.  In addition to the natural water element at the back, aspects of Italian and Spanish influence are incorporated in a water feature at the front of the home. Whether walking in or out of the house, a welcome feeling of tranquility and contemplation is nearby.

We strive to be the best residential architects in Kansas City, as we serve our clients around the country.
