Kitchen Renovation in Overland Park by Sharp Architects:
“This is a large project completed in the mid 2000s and a household residence of approximately 2 adults and 3 bedrooms. Averagely this is a kitchen (living room) with a large gourmet eat-in area and 2 small decks and two water features. This residence is one of a series of incremental changes to the Overland Park site. The first to be constructed on this lot was this 2-bedroom residence.
The clients hired Sharp Architects to demolish the existing home and to construct a totally new home on this site. Both the existing home and the new addition are to be constructed in the same material as the pre-existing house to provide links and continuity to the site and its surrounding residential neighborhood.
The architects chose a concrete construction for the main floor of the residence consisting of 30 pieces of masonry bonded together with plywood. The middle of the building is designed as a large open living space with a nearly 30 foot height ceiling. This allows the living room to extend into the terrace which would be considered a loft. The new additions merge into the background with the existing façade and roof structure of the 1960’s.
The site has a rocky southeast side with views towards the path and around. The client’s requested a simple interior layout and a living space which opens directly to the terrace. No unnecessary elements were included in the design in order to maintain a tranquil atmosphere.
