Kansas City, MO
Full Design / Documentation
Matt and Jessica Shepherd moved back home to Kansas City from Portland, Oregon, to start and raise a family. Not wanting to leave their urban life behind, they selected a historic and demographically diverse neighborhood on the west edge of Kansas City’s downtown loop. The couple wanted an extremely simple, minimalistic house that created a quiet, box-like container for their family and a backdrop for Matt’s artistic endeavors.
The shifted boxes that form the house are finished from a small palette of textures and tones, including raw structural steel, a warm grey corrugated metal, a concrete plinth and Brazilian redwood.
