A contemporary, concrete walkway leads through the gap in the retaining wall to the elegant, contemporary front door. The textured glass on the front door, as well as the retaining wall, lend some privacy to the home.
A unique, angled wood and metal doorway is nestled into a vermillion accent wall, creating a striking foyer that's made even more dramatic with a massive, grid-patterned skylight. Steel beams and metal rails fit with the home's contemporary architecture.
A wall between the entry and this room was removed and replaced with open railing. Now there's a sight line from the dining room and foyer into the office allowing for lots of natural light to flow throughout and for there to be an open flow that unifies the spaces.
A lofty cathedral ceiling makes for a grand entrance in the foyer and allows transom windows to let in ample natural light. The stacked stone facade, lantern sconces and contemporary wooden door give this exterior a rustic, Craftsman look.
The home's entrance is integrated into the same floor level as the office, and a small window from the office is the only visual contact with the front street. The concrete slab foundation is left visible, lending a cool, industrial vibe to the space.
The main entrance features two short stairways — one offering access to the main living space and the other offering access to the elevated master bedroom. A wall provides privacy for the master bedroom in the mostly open concept home.
A high-ceilinged foyer is surrounded by shiny metal beams and topped by a gridwork skylight that brings loads of natural light into this contemporary Reno home. Modern metal rails line the stairway and enclose the upstairs balcony, while bright vermillion walls give the space strong presence. A live tree in a mini-garden brings the outdoors in.
