Westside Kansas City

Awe-inspiring design on Kansas City’s Westside

This inspirational, signature home is perched high on the hill of Kansas City’s kitschy Westside overlooking the downtown skyline.

The goal was striking interior details, featuring cutting-edge technology that would complement traditional architectural elements to ensure this iconic home’s position would sit as an awe-inspiring symbol for years to come.

Sitting on a small 50’x80’ urban lot, the homeowners envisioned a place where everyone who entered would feel welcome and at home but also feel special and pampered. They foresaw their company’s design studio on the lower level while the remaining three floors provide areas designed to entertain and celebrate the city.

Project challenges:

This urban lot was small, limiting the horizontal footprint of the house. The design of the home needed to embrace the historical neighborhood while offering a modern feel – creating tomorrow’s heritage inside yesterday’s legacy.

Project solutions:

Building “up” allowed not only opportunity for each level to have a specific function and feel but also created outstanding multi-level city views.

The Outcome.

This one-of-a-kind custom build offers a dynamic layout, effortlessly balancing functionality and luxury across its four floors. From a private second floor retreat with lavish amenities to a vibrant third floor designed for entertaining, each level is meticulously crafted to enhance the homeowner’s lifestyle and celebrate the cityscape.

The floorplan: Versatility meets luxury.

The lower level: Studio

An entire floor dedicated to the owners’ design studio, the lower level offers an inspiring, creative and productive office space for the owner’s to run their business.

 

The first floor: Multi-functional

The first floor seamlessly blends versatility and elegance, featuring a study for focused work, a stylish powder room, and a cozy lounge for relaxation. The wine closet adds a touch of sophistication, while the kitchen/dining area and expansive great room with soaring 21’ ceilings provide the perfect environment for family gatherings or relaxation.

 

The second floor: Private retreat

The private second floor features two spacious guest bedrooms and a luxurious Primary Suite. With a steam shower, his/her closets and a free-standing tub with a large skylight overhead to view the stars at night, the owners may never want to leave their room again.

 

The third floor: Hosting and entertainment space

A vibrant and inviting atmosphere, the third floor is where the party gets started. Highlighting vaulted ceilings, bar, powder bath, lounge and two separate rooftop decks, this space is perfect for entertaining and admiring the city lights and night sky.

Rooftop Sky Bar

Although dark and moody interiors are displayed on the first few floors, the rooftop Sky Bar – in stark white – highlights the incredible 270-degree views while allowing the city lights and surrounding landscape to shine.
