Platform House

Rural Platte County, KS United States


Project Description

2008 RADA

Architectural Interiors / Merit

The young owners of this house wanted a flexible and hip building within a modest footprint and budget. Dan Rockhill willingly took on the challenge.

Within a 77-foot-long-by-24-foot-deep plan, he inserted seven symmetrical bays to contain everything but the open living/dining space. And he divided the bays from the public space with four 11-foot-wide frosted glass sliding doors set on a continuous track. Rockhill jokes that his clients can configure the house for “a Ping-Pong tournament or an intimate dinner.”

But the jury was seriously taken by Rockhill's use of sliding doors as a modulation device, which, they said, resulted in “remarkable” and “enigmatic” spaces.
