A Modern Heavy Metal Property, Missouri

Kansas City-based design studio Hufft Projects has designed the Heavy Metal house. Completed in 2010, this single-storey, contemporary property can be found in Joplin, Missouri, USA.

According to the architects: “Glass, steel, and concrete come together on this residence in a sophisticated composition of modern proportions and elegant detail. Aptly named Heavy Metal, this steel clad private contemporary Missouri property sits on eight acres of heavily wooded terrain. The skin is a layered facade of glass and perforated steel with large glass openings placed in strategic locations to capture the beautiful and rugged landscape.

“Where required, these openings are shielded by approximately two hundred unique 4’ x 10’ cold rolled steel panels.  Each panel has a custom perforation pattern which is determined by a complex process that takes into account solar gain, varying levels of transparency and privacy needs. to make this the perfect contemporary Missouri property.”
