Standout Features: Rethinking the Foyer

Kasler Foyer

Designing a home in collaboration with one of America’s foremost interior designers presents a unique opportunity and this house proved to be just that.  The home incorporates many of Suzanne Kasler’s concepts and ideas for gracious living within the context of traditional Georgian architecture. 

The core of the house was an existing house with a center hall plan.  The scope of work, however, doubled the size of the existing house and reoriented the back half of the house on axis with the rear lawn and new pool. 

Upon entering the house, one is greeted by the surprise of a reconfigured entry hall having the stairs off to one side. The diamond pane detail of the limestone lintels is repeated on the panels of the front door and again on the main staircase. 

Unexpected layout and design details such as these keep the eyes entertained and give a home a a renewed atmosphere.
