5967 Residence is a renovation of a 1950’s home in Omaha, NE. The owners wanted a design to reflect their lifestyle, treating the space as a backdrop to the objects and artworks they have collected over the years. The existing wall separating the kitchen and living areas was removed, and the entire space was redesigned under a restructured roof. The feature element in the center, a mahogany wood slat enclosure breakfast bar, was conceived as a focal element which would help to both connect and separate space depending on sight lines. In the north-south direction, it frames space creating significant connections while the view through the slats in the east-west direction creates variable degrees of transparency.
