Andrews Residence -- south
project: Andrew's Residence.
location: South Signal Hills Road, Kirkwood, Missouri.
architect: Harris Armstrong.
A wood frame structure with a single-pitch roof located on a sloping site. The V-shaped house opens to the south with two full stories. The house is more closed and private at the north with a single story at the entry.
The roof overhangs all four sides of the house. The overhang at the front creates a covered carport. Acrylic dome skylights are set into the tar and gravel roof. The overhand to the south provides protection from the hot summer sun.
