NSPJ is proud and excited to partner with a long-standing single-family developer that has a unique vision and appreciation of modern designs. Lots were purposely acquired in the West Plaza area of Kansas City to bring their stylish, modern ambitions to life.

Side-by-side, modern homes with three story walls and large windows that are uniquely rare in this neighborhood are planned.  Each home is distinctly custom designed, NSPJ punched enormous openings on all sides making the inside seemingly skeletal to allow for a light and bright ambiance.  Exceptionally unique subset steel frames of these four-story structures deliver the impression that they are effortlessly open.

Walking up to these homes under a canopy typically is not possible.  Using grading studies, a daylight element for the front entries on the first level is designed by cutting the entire center section of the home into a hillside and holding grade back between the two homes.

Additional features of the home embodied a floating tread staircase that allows light to filter through the staircase itself.  For the primary bedroom, floating vanities are designed in the bathrooms and transom windows in the shower allow natural light in the space.  The homeowner requested a “jam room” for her husband to play multiple instruments that is inaudible from the rest of the home.  A rooftop deck contains a “sky lounge” and a double-sided fireplace with marvelous views of the Plaza skyline.
