From Kids to Quiet

On the site of an old family summer cottage, nestled on a lake in upstate New York, rests this newly constructed year round residence. The house is designed for two, yet provides plenty of space for adult children and grandchildren to come and visit. The serenity of the lake is captured with an open floor plan, anchored by fireplaces to cozy up to. The public side of the house presents a subdued presence with a courtyard enclosed by three wings of the house.

French doorsThe classic, in-swing French door is often an elegant and stately architectural element that connects the inside to the outside. Because it is a hinged, swinging door, it will take up floor space – it doesn’t just sit within the plane of the wall. Incorporating doors like these will have an impact on furniture placement and how the room functions.Also, these doors have limited width. Each door panel can’t be overly large as the hardware would get quite large or the operation of the door would suffer. These doors are typically no wider than about 6 feet.
