Rustic, modern, relaxed, functional, cheerful and charming; the Madison Residence in Kansas City is all that and a whole lot more. Designed by KEM Studio for a homeowner who is a creative spirit, this budget residence does its best to create a soothing setting that aids in the writing and musical enterprises of its owner. Spread across 1,200 square feet, it is functionality and sustainability that define the overall form of the house and its unassuming interior. Large windows bring in plenty of natural light and cut down dependence on artificial illumination while warm wooden surfaces offer the perfect insulation.
Lower level of the house contains the living space, multiple workstations and a gorgeous kitchen with a versatile island at its heart. With 2 bedrooms and bathrooms, focus here is firmly on making the best use of available space even while making sure that one room flows into another effortlessly. Thanks to the large glass windows, the outdoors become a part of the interior even as the neutral color scheme lets pops of curated red shine through.
Minimal in its own comfortable way, the Madison Residence has an aura that is both rustic and modern at the same time. With ample space to entertain guests and host weekend parties, the house can quickly transform into a hub of activity and endless fun when needed. With deft use of bookcases, floating shelves and wall-mounted cabinets, an air of spaciousness defines this lovely Kansas City home.
