Waterfront Modern Mediterranean

Kansas City Metro


This Waterfront Modern Mediterranean home, located in the Kansas City area, has become a resort at home for the owners. Situated on an expansive lake with its own beach, the house is sited to take in expansive views of the water and the heavily wooded area surrounding the residence. The building location of the house presented a challenge as it is wrapped around an area of the lake and up against a natural rock outcropping. NSPJ was tasked with designing a structure that would compliment the beautiful vistas in all directions and be a home that meets the needs of this young and active family.

The Modern Mediterranean aesthetic has been brought up to date with a flowing, open floor plan and contemporary light-colored materials. While the forms are still traditional to the style, the exterior and interior are filled with subtle finishes and large, oversized windows to take advantage of the abundant openness and light. With rooms opening onto each other both horizontally and vertically, there are always numerous views of the outdoors and the sky in each of the main rooms. Featuring a soaring foyer with a sweeping staircase to the second floor, followed by a second staircase leading up to a tower room, provides the best views of the surrounding landscape for miles around. On the first floor, a large two-story great room with waterfront views and an adjacent expansive kitchen has a lakeside breakfast bay. A two-story garden room filled with plants and daylight throughout the seasons does double duty as a living and dining space. The transition between the two is enhanced by deep, wide archways and large glass doors to the exterior entertaining areas. Once outside, a freestanding activity building sits on the water’s edge and is constructed in a style to echo the main residence. Used primarily for indoor sports, it also serves as the perfect venue for large scale social gatherings.
