Bent/Sliced HouseContemporary Kids, Kansas City

This is take two on ‘The Bent House’, which was canceled
after a design board did not approve the modern style in a
conservative neighbrohood. So we decided to take it one
step further and now it is the ‘bent and sliced house’.
The bend is from the original design (a.k.a.The Bent House),
and is a gesture to the curved slope of the site. This curve,
coincidentally, is almost the same of the previous design’s
site, and thus could be re-utilized.
Similiar to Japanese Oragami, this house unfolds like a piece
of slice paper from the sloped site. The negative space
between the slices creates wonderful clerestories for natural
light and ventilation. Photo Credit: Mike Sinclair

      Ramp up the design. Add interest to simple shelves by arranging them in a quirky pattern. Here, the designer has positioned them in a staggered pattern to turn them into a real feature of the room. The bottom shelf acts as a desk.

      Football helmets can also provide plenty of material to work with. If your kid is an avid football fan, consider proudly displaying a collection of helmets on a shelf.
