ENTRY OVERHANG WOOD ARBOR #30
 
Price: $5,150
 
                       
 


On those occasions when Charles or Ben can manage a site visit, the results are not only of a broader scope, but almost always of a design nature far more aggressive than without the advantage of visiting a site personally. Here we have an overhanging Arbor to accentuate the entry and provide some detailed workmanship to an architecture of purposeful simplicity.

  The residence featured a sparse and uncluttered facade. Creating an entry grid gate, and overhanging grid Entry Arbor awning helped to introduce a few subtle, but related details.

  Now and again we'll include a 'before' photograph. Here we are illustrating the utter loss of any defining detail upon approach to the primary entrance. The stage was set with an entry gate at the front wall (Garden Gate #84), and followed upon entry into the property with the new awning arbor mimicking many of the gate's detailing.

The commission began by establishing a front entrance, where Charles first met Brian Von Rheenan, the site contractor. A friendship developed and an ensuing working relationship that for many years now has seen Brian involved with the vast majority of all of our Bay Area commissions. See Regarding Installations

NOTES: > A number of details in the home's architecture suggested a work that would accomplish three things:

1) Establish the entry while providing a focal point to a residence in need of defining details.
2) Mirror the distinctive radiused corners of the residence.
3) Enable Charles to finally enact a design that has pestered him for far too long; an overhead structure with glass or Plexiglas lites that enjoys southern exposure. The exposure is everything, in that here we are available to the arc of the sun's path for a number of hours every day. As the sunlight strikes the glass, the light is thrown onto not just the surface below, but diffused through the glass entry door and onto the wood floors of the foyer with a coloring that is established by the color of the awning lites.
