The modular modern farmhouse, located on an infill site in an historic neighborhood near downtown Lawrence, Kansas, is the second case study house designed and built by the owners/architects. Questioning the contemporary practicality of traditional on-site construction practices, the owners sought to discover opportunities for reducing residential construction costs and time frames, while simultaneously seeking to create an expressive yet contextual, family-friendly, Net Zero-ready home.
The resulting home is indistinguishable from site-built construction. The gabled massing speaks to the traditional forms of the neighborhood, while a protruding window centered over the owners’ bed provides an unexpected moment of interest. A wrap-around porch and expansive windows allow the owners to interact with the neighbors. At the interior, oiled steel “jewelry” interplays with warm wood tones and white walls creating a comfortable and refined materiality. Proper siting and carefully sized overhangs effectively manage solar exposure throughout the year to keep the occupants comfortable.
