Shelton Marshall Residence

El Dorado Inc as Architects

The Shelton Marshall Residence is an unlikely urban home in downtown Kansas City. Built on a steeply sloped site, the residence is “U” shaped in plan, organized around a sunken entry courtyard on the high side of the site and a dramatically cantilevered porch that floats above the street. Large sliding glass and screen doors connect the kitchen, dining room and the living room to the courtyard providing the entire house with cross ventilation to enjoy evening summer breezes. The house leverages natural daylighting to provide 100% of its daytime illumination, and its super-insulated structure includes a fully ventilated rainscreen, continuous exterior rigid wall insulation, thermally broken glazing systems and a planted roof. Conventional climate control systems are replaced by a whole-house radiant floor and a high-efficiency wood burning stove.
