Curved House

Contemporary Exterior, Kansas City

The Curved House is a modern residence with distinctive lines. Conceived in plan as a U-shaped form, this residence features a courtyard that allows for a private retreat to an outdoor pool and a custom fire pit. The master wing flanks one side of this central space while the living spaces, a pool cabana, and a view to an adjacent creek form the remainder of the perimeter. A signature masonry wall gently curves in two places signifying both the primary entrance and the western wall of the pool cabana. An eclectic and vibrant material palette of brick, Spanish roof tile, Ipe, Western Red Cedar, and various interior finish tiles add to the dramatic expanse of the residence. The client’s interest in suitability is manifested in numerous locations, which include a photovoltaic array on the cabana roof, a geothermal system, radiant floor heating, and a design which provides natural daylighting and views in every room.

    He's right, it's definitely not made out of pallets. The cracks between them are too thin, and there are metal fence posts. I think that the fence looks great though. I would love to see the design plans someday.

    No, it's not- but don't even think about making a fence from pallet lumber if you live in a termite prone area; they will demolish it overnight- I've seen this happen. A borax treatment might work, but only if you seal it with paint and even then, the treatment will wash out.
