Modern w/ a Side of Ranch

This contemporary renovation makes no concession towards differentiating the old from the new. Rather than razing the entire residence an effort was made to conserve what elements could be worked with and added space where an expanded program required it. Clad with cedar, the addition contains a master suite on the first floor and two children’s rooms and playroom on the second floor. A small vegetated roof is located adjacent to the stairwell and is visible from the upper landing. Interiors throughout the house, both in new construction and in the existing renovation, were handled with great care to ensure an experience that is cohesive. Partition walls that once differentiated living, dining, and kitchen spaces, were removed and ceiling vaults expressed. A new kitchen island both defines and complements this singular space.

The parti is a modern addition to a suburban midcentury ranch house. Hence, the name “Modern with Ranch.”

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Inventive Design: L-Shaped Windows
The modern addition to a ranch in Kansas sets up a strong distinction between old and new. The latter is tall and flat-roofed, where the former is one story with a gable roof. This contrast is furthered by the L-shaped opening that is visible to the right of the chimney. More modern chimneys
Cathy Lara added this to Homes Play the Name Game
Name: Modern With a Side of RanchLocation: Kansas City, MissouriThis contemporary renovation lives up to its name by differentiating the cedar-clad modern addition from the existing midcentury ranch house. However, the interior reflects a stronger preference for modern design and decor, so inside isn't too much of a mixed salad. Tell us: Has your home merited a name of its own? Share it with us below.
Jen Dalley |||||||||||||| added this to Skip the Brick for a Statement-Making Chimney
Imagine sitting inside this home, snug beside the fireplace, gazing out at the views through the windows on either side. This chimney’s single volume conceals two flues, as evidenced by the caps at the top: one flue for the interior fireplace, and another for the exterior one.
