HEAVY METAL

Location: Joplin, Missouri (USA)
Scale: 7.5 acres
Client: Mr. Bill Perry
Design Team: Hufft Projects + 40NORTH
Construction Cost: Confidential
Scope: Concept Design + Schematic Design

This project is an uber-modern residential compound and photography studio in the woodlands of southern Missouri. Situated on 11 acres of property in the heart of the City of Joplin, 40NORTH worked with Hufft Projects and MAKE Studios of Kansas City to create a one-of-a-kind residential experience for a local artist and businessman.

The facade of the 4000 square foot residence is 14 gauge perforated steel, allowed to weather and rust naturally in the surrounding wooded environment. The architect created an algorithm to determine the opacity of each vertical panel based, determined by the level of privacy the interior space required.

40NORTH provided a master plan framework for the entire property, and design detailing for an outdoor kitchen, seating, and dining area, as well as several small intimate gardens around the perimeter of the residence.

The project was built in 2010, and it survived an EF5 hurricane that came through Joplin MO on 23 May 2011. The project has been the recipient of numerous regional and national architectural awards, including being featured in Architectural Digest’s HOUSES ISSUE in June 2012.
