Surrounded by mahogany and redwood, filled with light from floor to ceiling windows, mostly original fixtures, this 1955 house is an great place to call home when visiting beautiful Lawrence, KS.
This house is a piece of mid-century modern architectural history! An outstanding example of contemporary architecture, this compact, steel post and beam two-story is the work of Warren Heylman, a noted Spokane, Wash.-based architect who designed the Spokane International Airport terminal and many other iconic examples of modernism in the Spokane area. Heylman’s brother-in-law, Lee Zimmerman, owner of Zimmerman Steel in Lawrence, commissioned the house for his family.
From the entrance hall, a floating stairway suspended with metal rods leads to a balcony hallway upstairs that overlooks the living room below. A freestanding fireplace with raised hearth rises to support the second story, and provides separation between the living-dining areas. With no interior doors, movement within the house is free flowing and relaxed. Room-filling natural light is provided by 12X12-foot north-facing windows that reach the top of the cathedral ceiling. Mahogany paneling adorns the walls, providing a rich contrast to the milky white tile flooring. The space is delightfully airy, refined, and minimal.
Your room is a cozy, light-filled space (with darkening curtains) that overlooks the greenspace across the street. It has two comfortable twin beds (feel free to push together if you want to get cozy!), a chair and a small closet space.
When you are here, you will share the living space with one adult, one child, and one small puppy.
