Located in Mission Hills, Kan., this French Colonial home underwent a complete transformation for a family who moved from the East Coast. The clients had a few requirements for the home – an open floor plan for the kitchen and living spaces, main level laundry and an outdoor kitchen – but left the design to NSPJ Architects.
The result is a residence that incorporates custom touches throughout that create beautiful living spaces and continuity on each level. The transformation was so dramatic that the only item from the original home was the mantle and marble from the fireplace, which was repurposed in the new master bedroom. Some of the design changes included moving the kitchen to the back of the home, incorporating larger windows in the front of the house and opening up the second floor with dormers to maximize the natural light. The transformation of this place was so dramatic that the only item from the original home was the mantle and marble from the fireplace, which was repurposed in the new master bedroom.
The covered outdoor kitchen and living area in the back of the house is ideal for entertainment, with a seamless flow between the interior and exterior.
