Porch House

The Porch House located just west of Springfield, Missouri, presented Hufft Projects with a unique challenge. The clients desired a residence that referenced the traditional forms of farmhouses but also spoke to something distinctly modern. A hybrid building emerged and the Porch House greets visitors with its namesake – a large east and south facing ten foot cantilevering canopy that provides dramatic cover.

The residence also commands a view of the expansive river valley to the south. L-shaped in plan, the house’s master suite is located in the western leg and is isolated away from other functions allowing privacy. The living room, dining room, and kitchen anchor the southern, more traditional wing of the house with its spacious vaulted ceilings. A chimney punctuates this area and features a granite clad fireplace on the interior and an exterior fireplace expressing split face concrete block. Photo Credit: Mike Sinclair

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Amy Renea added this to A Fine Balance Makes the Space
5. Architectural adjustments. The design of this home balances weight asymmetrically. Notice that there are two windows and two dormers on the right side of the home, as opposed to the one lower window and upper dormer on the left side. To balance the weight of the right 2 dormers, a long, horizontol porch roof extends to the left, giving the house a balanced weight.
