Warm wood, translucent etched-glass panels, and a hydronically heated concrete floor create a sophisticated yet hardworking
entry for the home in Palo Alto, California. The 8- by 20-foot space features stained maple cabinetry lining one side, with
a closet for coats and a 4-foot bench above a shoe-storage space. Sleek built-ins include a drawer unit that also opens from
the living room, on the other side of the partition.
