This late 19th century house was vacant for months until its new life was restored. Completely gutted, redesigned and reconstructed 3918 sits atop Kansas City's Hyde Park district next to one of the oldest Oak tree's around. The 20" thick west exterior stone wall was failing was in dire need of repair. The new glass facade helps unify the exterior with the interior and provides some pretty amazing views. Stabilizing the existing structural system was a challenge but the result is a nice balance of traditional and modern architecture.
