The entry and office required dramatic, eye-catching elements to set the tone for the whole house. The design team hand-selected every part of the two rooms to complement one another and still stand out on their own. Despite the extravagance of the entry and office, every aspect is functional, from the quartz wall that doubles as a coat rack to the durable tile floor.
Despite the grand scale of the overall house, the entry and office are small spaces. A glass wall separates the foyer from the office while creating visibility between the two rooms. The glass opens up the area and allows it to appear more spacious.
The front door is black, matching the black tones throughout the house, with windows set into the door. These windows provide natural light that reflects off the glass wall, highlighting the focal points of the entry and office. The natural light brings a calming warmth that both complements and distinguishes the modern elements of the rooms.

We knew there were going to be seams in the quartz wall, and instead of having an issue with covering seams, let's turn the obstacle into a design feature. We added thick white oak to hide the seams, and then we utilized the wood by adding coat hooks. We don't have a coat closet, let's make these hooks a purposeful design feature and focal point.

The flooring in the entry and office is tile to reduce maintenance as people enter with dirty and muddy shoes. The geometric design is modern, with neutral colors that reflect the quartz wall and the color palette throughout the house. It reflects the striking features of the quartz wall and glass wall, playing off the two for a dramatic effect.
