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
4. Parallel weight. Hallways are typically long, narrow and straight and need a little weight to slow down the bowling-alley effect.In this hallway, a large collection of frames hang gallery style to balance the weight of the imposing bank of windows. The frames are spread out long the length of the hallway instead of a typical square configuration. This reinforces the line of the hallway and keeps you walking, but slows down the pace a bit.
Katya Popova added this to Put a Narrow Hallway to Work
A gallery wall is the perfect opportunity for you to display all those silly family photos you love ...
Laura Gaskill added this to Design Solutions for 11 Tricky Spaces
Tricky space 1: Long, narrow hallThe solution: Think art gallery. Fresh white walls are the classic choice, though textured grasscloth or a coat of rich color would work equally well. Go sleek and simple with all black and white pieces, or create a quirky gallery with eclectic, colorful artwork hung in a line, with some frames left intentionally empty. Finish the space with proper lighting. Try overhead track lighting and/or small wall-mounted lights to illuminate the art.
A corridor leads from the kitchen, bedroom and laundry area past the garage (on the right) to the master suite. Family photos hang about head height on one side of the hall, opposite south-facing windows shaded by a cantilevered roof.A glass door at the visual terminus of the hallway provides a view of the backyard and direct access to the porch.

2. A picture gallery. This designer took advantage of an extra-long hallway by hanging a row of family photos and art. While identical frames and matting can look graphic and bold, this eclectic mix of colors and sizes adds warmth to the space.How to get your art placement right
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Downsizing Help: How to Edit Your Belongings
Family photos can be among the hardest things to deal with when we start to edit, because each one tells a story, brings back a memory. Even I never threw away a picture. When we downsized the first time from our family home on acreage to a 775-square-foot condominium in the city, my lovely family picture gallery (similar to the one shown here) was not going to escape editing, and yours probably won’t either.
Mary Jo Bowling added this to How to Design a Family Photo Wall
Although Mughannam personally likes to use frames of the same color and size, she says it’s not the only option. “You can certainly hang a collection of vintage frames,” she says. “But I think it looks best if they are all the same distance apart.”This photo wall, by Hufft Projects, for a home in Kansas City, Missouri, includes a wide variety of frames, but it has discipline because the outermost edges are aligned and the frames are spaced equidistantly.

What if we created an open room with Windows where the walls are down the hall way? With Shutters or blinds for privacy? I think that would open up that hall way with much needed light and still keep a third bedroom for resale purposes.
