While little was needed in regard to updating the exterior, the entry point was one of the first and most dramatic changes of the remodel. Veronica Schreibeis Smith, CEO and Founding Principal at Vera Iconica Architecture, says, “The exterior and site work were in good condition. However, the log structure was heavy, with austere, solid wood exterior doors. We redesigned the front entry to add light to the interior spaces, making the first impression of the home inviting and open.” The new entry door is 3.5 by 9 feet and made from reclaimed wood and decorative steel bolts. The now light- filled entryway also includes seating designed by Poltrona Frau and Heidi Jung’s “Seaweed Study III” in Sumi ink, charcoal and pastel on a Mylar panel. 18 PEACHYTHEMAGAZINE.COM
