Create a Dramatic Entryway

The clients wanted to enhance the entry experience to their home. By creating a two story space with northerly exposures, we were able to create an extension to their art display options. Capturing a surrounded courtyard space on the deck allowed a creative expansion to the art gallery. Simultaneously, a wine closet was able to be created as well. (See images above.)

A simple standard shingle roof covered the original one-story area.

The design premise manifested itself to become a clear sightline from the front door through the expanded foyer to the pergola covered deck (shown at immediate left). This allowed for a framed view of redwoods and Russian River valley beyond.

The result is a striking entryway to beautifully showcase the owners’ artwork and the fabulous view afforded by the Russian River Valley location.
