Porch HouseContemporary Hallway & Landing, Kansas City
The Porch House located just west of Springfield, Missouri, presented Hufft Projects with a unique challenge. The clients desired a residence that referenced the traditional forms of farmhouses but also spoke to something distinctly modern. A hybrid building emerged and the Porch House greets visitors with its namesake – a large east and south facing ten foot cantilevering canopy that provides dramatic cover.
The residence also commands a view of the expansive river valley to the south. L-shaped in plan, the house’s master suite is located in the western leg and is isolated away from other functions allowing privacy. The living room, dining room, and kitchen anchor the southern, more traditional wing of the house with its spacious vaulted ceilings. A chimney punctuates this area and features a granite clad fireplace on the interior and an exterior fireplace expressing split face concrete block. Photo Credit: Mike Sinclair

Hallways are often forgotten in the powerpoint planning session, as they don’t count as a room on the floorplan. However, it is still very handy to have a powerpoint in the hallway, particularly long ones, as your vacuum cleaner cord is unlikely to reach the whole length of it. TIP: Long hallways are often dark, so powerpoints can also be utilised for free-standing floor lamps to brighten up the space.
