Located in a historic district of Kansas City, Missouri, this duplex was renovated in 2012. Architecture firm Kem Studio stayed true to the home’s original shape while updating its façade and its interior with modern materials, like the gray brick that lines the bottom half.
During the renovation of this Texas home, the residents noted that they would prefer to keep some elements of the original design, including the sandy brick lower level.
