5002 Residence Update

If you've driven down Wornall into the plaza you might have seen this. The screen wall from the exterior is pretty much done and looks great. A closer view. This was the first time we've worked with this material, DassoXTR, and our first impressions are good. It is a great alternative to Ipe, though it is a little more expensive, it is actually more dense and a lot straighter. The downside is that is only comes in 6'...

5002 Residence

After taking a short rest from the completion of a new curved stair case in the living room the clients have decided to take on a new project - the exterior deck. Demolition found some unwelcome though not entirely unexpected things. The existing structure had some significant rot throughout which we suspected might be the case. We didn't realize that the existing deck wasn't really anchored to the ground and the structural support were mostly just sitting on dirt. Not an...

Coming Soon!

A big sneak preview of things that are coming soon! Three really different projects at three different scales which is what we love about what we do! The first is a garage/ mudroom/ shop addition that is just starting construction. We are adding to an existing garage to create two car tandom garage plus storage and shop space. An overhanging roof expands and shelters the existing outdoor space. Next is a another fantastic kitchen! Demolition is well under way and we should...

Ward and Ward

We haven't really posted anything from this project during the process but you may have noticed the work going on if you spend much time around the Brookside area. I (Matt) actually worked for Ward & Ward off and on for quite some time so when they decided to move it was a perfect fit for RDM to be involved in the project. The building is a little brick mid-century just around the corner from their previous location. The idea...

New Project – C2 Residence

A new project that we're excited about is under construction and we haven't gotten around to posting anything about it so this post is image-filled and for the sake of clarity this post is divided into the different little parts of the larger project. Starting with the Kitchen. The existing kitchen? Not great and the giant mass above the range is an overpowering and not very efficient use of space. Getting rid of that was priority number 1 (in the photo...

Belvedere Update 35

We've posted these on our Facebook page but in case you haven't seen them or your like a bit more description, here we go! Here are two views of the arcade from the exterior. There is a lot of landscaping that still needs to be done and the driveway and walks are still a giant hole. The house itself is pretty much done and the clients have moved in and love the way it turned out and how the light changes...

New Project – Deck +

A quick intro to a new project we've got under construction now. An existing and poorly constructed composite deck wasn't large enough and didn't fit the lifestyle of the current homeowners. (It looks a lot nicer in the photos, trust us) Below is a pair of renderings we prepared that show pretty much where we ended up. Not only is the deck larger but a large portion of it is covered by a conventional roof and with a polycarbonate...
