Brian returned from British Columbia and mentioned details of this home designed by James Tuer that he shot for the next HOUSES issue:
Making an entrance, personal. Here’s an entry sequence that illustrates how architects design homes—in ways both practical and subtle—to fit the specific needs of their clients. For these outdoor athletes, where the stairs to the second floor would have been in many small bungalows, is a utility closet to store their gear. A barn-style door keeps their things hidden and the entry quiet and inviting. The step down into the great room is like a second entry, signaling a transition from their active life outside to the quiet of their of their home.
