A playful collaboration of metal,
weathering steel, wood, concrete, CMU and stone, the H2J House was deliberately
designed for three generations.
Past | Western Wing: A couple in their late 70s. The choice to have this couple on the west side of the home reflects the symbolism that a setting sun calls to mind.
Present | Eastern Wing: A couple in their mid 50s. This couple rises with the sun in the east each morning, representing the vitality and spirit of middle age.
Future | Block House: Children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and their families.
Guests can enjoy a fully independent living space that gives them privacy, relaxation and peace.
The owners of this home are
Seattle transplants who lived their early lives surrounded by west coast
architecture heavily imbued with Asian and Prairie School influences. This
successful executive couple, now living in Joplin, Missouri with customers from
around the globe, desired a home that would facilitate large group entertaining
with a resort-like ambiance, yet have an intimate, personal feel for
comfortable, casual living – all woven together in the fabric of a modern home
with familiar design undertones that settles naturally into the Midwest
MM31 is the first of a
series of Midwest Modern homes designed for the open market in some of the more
established areas in Tulsa. Set in a neighborhood of modestly-sized ranch style
houses, this 3,750 square foot home takes cues of exterior materials and proportions
from its neighbors.
