Hanson Carlen is happy to announce
the achievement of a bronze design award
in the Residential Specialty category
from Qualified Remodeler’s Magazine.
The 2017 Master Design Awards program recognizes the nation’s best work in sixteen general categories of residential and commercial remodeling. The Master Design Awards are open to any professional remodeler and design professional in the United States.
The owner of a 1981 home asked for a dramatic entry. Their desire: to showcase a
grand entrance to their large vaulted living room, which could also serve
as an open stairway to the basement. Located in the center of the house, the entry
width limited the number of options for a stair configuration. The exterior of the
entry competed for aesthetic space with the vaulted
garage but could not be out of scale upon entering the house.
Our solution? Outside, a 24-foot high vaulted entry rises above the large
adjacent garage roof. Inside, a ten foot by 14-foot entrance between the front
door and existing living area balances the volume within the home. A small
addition to the front of the house allows guests to move about freely without
feeling confined. A dramatic 15-foot cascading light fixture with multiple
translucent globes hangs above the semi-circular basement stairway to
welcome visitors. The gorgeous stairway rail was uniquely
hand-crafted with special metal.
