Projects: Elegant Entry

This project is currently under construction.

This beautiful historic 1800s Farmhouse and summer kitchen building was the dream for these clients.  The Farmhouse came with an existing dingy and poorly planned entry “porch” that was leaking and not congruent with the quality of the property.

The clients commissioned Alight Design to create an actual ENTRY to let every guest know they  come inside.  As extensive antiques and art collectors, another program element the client wanted was an indoor/outdoor type space to accentuate, display, and sit with their collections. Alight Design elegantly created a classical entrance which welcomes visitors and lets them know they have arrived to some place extraordinary.  The entry also incorporates the functional elements of a mudroom with a closet and bench seat you need coming in from the farm grounds.

Once you have entered you are in a light filled comfortable airy space with the choice of where to go next.  Right is the summer kitchen, left you enter the residence, and continuing back you are welcomed to the gallery pavilion. The gallery truly embodies the mission of Alight Design and is designed with glass all around to the views of the farm.  The pavilion has a cupola with clearstory windows to fill the space with light and air.  At night, the pavilion shines its light to the world.
