Random Road House 2001

The fourth house in the city of Lawrence, and the second for Tenants to Homeowners, 1603 Random Road was designed and completed during the spring semester of 2001. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom house includes a fully accessible interior. The second floor amenities designed to meet the needs of a residential care provider. The stacked bathrooms are clad in translucent polycarbonate, which adds a dynamic translucency to the interior volume. In addition, the interior is marked by the recycled gymnasium flooring salvaged from a demolition site in Kansas City. On the exterior, the house is skinned in maintenance free Corten steel while a former cooling tower is recycled to create the exterior screen element on the two long facades.
