The Entrance Lobby

We love the mountains and we used the beautiful Ash hardwood planks in this hallway/lobby to make an authentic connection between outdoor pursuits and contemporary living.

This outdoor-pursuits loving couple came to us wanting an interior renovation of their entrance hall area. They were looking to have something beautiful and functional designed that would be welcoming and practical whilst housing all the gear, shoes, jackets etc that keen outdoor enthusiasts gather, and they wanted to be able to sit to change shoes.

We chose English Ash planks for a clean, natural Lobby ambiance, taking the horizontal lines all the way to the base of the staircase. We built an under-stair storage closet with shelving and hanging space for clothing and gear, used wooden pegs to harmonise with the Ash planks and built shoe storage drawers that pivot open from the bottom under a sitting bench for easy access and shoe changes whilst seated.

It is a great space and really compliments the couple’s lifestyle and interests.

From The Customer...

“We love our bespoke designed and built lobby area. Sjouke took the time to understand how practical we wanted it to be for storing outdoor clothing and then added a level of design we could not have envisaged, coupled with a superb quality of build. It works perfectly and looks fantastic.

It’s been a few years but it still looks as good as the day it was completed.”
