You're greeted by this steel rod screen as soon as you walk in the door of this midcentury modern house. Softer than a solid wall, the rods allow light to carry through beyond the foyer. The screen's box shelf holds keys and mail, while the two detached ottomans provide a place to take off your shoes. Design by Matthew Hufft, creative director, Hufft Projects, Kansas City, Missouri.
Landscape architect Colwell Shelor transformed an exposed, conventional brick house on a hill into a bold, modern residence and garden united with the prairie in Dodge City, Kansas. The water feature brings clean lines and a calming element to the award-winning outdoor space.
