Built in 2010, Missouri’s Heavy Metal Residence is a product of Kansas City-based studio Hufft Projects. The house is a blend of glass, steel, and concert, but still retails the tranquility the homeowners wanted despite such industrial materials.
The Heavy Metal Residence sits on eight acres of wooded terrain. The facade of the home is dominated by perforated steel, but large openings of class have been strategically placed to maximize light and capture the most dramatic views of the surrounding landscape.
“Where required, these openings are shielded by approximately two hundred unique 4’ x 10’ cold rolled steel panels,” explains the architects. “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.”
