Stained cedar, ipe, and concrete form the palette of this 2,500-square-foot home in Kansas City, Missouri, designed by architect Josh Shelton of El Dorado Inc. Built into a sloped site, the sunken structure is topped with a lush roof that’s planted with indigenous wildflowers and native grasses. The green roof also helps insulate the home and limit its energy needs.
