Martha Road Ranch House

The most noteworthy quality of this suburban home was its dramatic site overlooking a wide- open hillside. The interior spaces, however, did little to engage with this expansive view. Our project corrects these deficits, lifting the height of the space over the kitchen and dining rooms and lining the rear facade with a series of 9' high doors, opening to the deck and the hillside beyond.

Make an entranceThis is another design by Neal Schwartz. “We needed to add just a bit of formality to this ranch house, although we couldn’t create a truly separate entry foyer,” he says. “Here, the bookshelves are accessed from both sides of the room and give the entry just enough of a sense of division and formality.”

Define your entry with a bookcaseAlthough this particular entry is larger than most of the ones we’re talking about, the idea is still excellent. A shallow bookcase like this one defines an entry area while taking up very little space, and adds style and function.
