DESIGN ARCHITECTS

The client asked us a simple question, “How can I get my guests to use the front door?” Though the question was simple, the solution was perplexing.

A simple but commanding threshold marker was the solution. A double-cantilevered concrete shape was placed to salute guests as they walk by on their way between the existing house and a new patio wall.
