Entry Hall/Mudrooms

Opacic Architects

Location: Scarsdale

The design for this entry revolves around the use of natural materials, the play of light, and the views. The entry brings in the home’s exterior elements, including stones and red cedar. A powder room and entry closet are discreetly hidden behind the stone base. The deep, red cedar eaves enter to become the ceiling of the two-story space. There are bronze “curtains” that let the daylight shine through, creating ever-changing patterns on the floor. There is also a wall of art that hides the main stair to the master suite. Daniel Barsanti of HB Home Design was the interior designer.

Because this family uses the mudroom
more than the entryway, Keller/Eaton Architects wanted it to feel as cozy and warm as the front door. They placed a center island for quick grocery and school backpack drop-off, a warm fireplace to heat up cold feet on winter days, and a collection of vintage lockers to bring in an old-school feel—making the mudroom both functional and stylish. The architect’s favorite element is the three-story floating staircase, which filters light from the large window behind it.

What was once a drab, split-level entry is now a beautiful nod to Craftsman style. This entry renovation worked entirely within the existing structure of the house and features custom built-ins and interior finishes that transformed the space. Architect Daniel Contelmo worked closely with the owners on each design decision. “They were wonderful to work with and opened up a different and welcome sense of style,” says Contelmo. The finished product is a path filled with beautiful details and thoughtful transitions.
