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
This fireplace has been placed asymmetrically on the hearth wall. While a pleasing and interesting architectural feature, the weight of the fireplace must be balanced. A sectional in the deep tones of the fireplace surround, situated slightly to the left, balances the feature perfectly.Show us: Share your balancing acts below!More: Let's Get SymmetricalWhy There's Beauty in Grid, Column and Row
Shane D. Inman added this to 8 Artfully Asymmetrical Fireplaces
Tall, dark and handsome. This tall fireplace with its dark standard-brick-pattern focal wall appears very masculine. Add a perfect dark wood mantel to complement any bachelor pad. Tip: A grand fireplace surround like this makes a small fireplace box look larger at first glance.
Add texture to your fireplace. If your room has a fireplace, consider beefing it up with a textural element. This granite fireplace surround gives the room an important visual focus while staying true to the room's clean form. Tip: Whatever finish you and your designer are working with, taking the surround to the ceiling can make the room feel taller.
