Designing Fitted Spaces - Transitional spaces
Written by richart khalil   

The entryway to a house projects the owner moods and desires, and it may be similar to the initial posture which the individual presents upon greeting another person. It can be formal or casual, firm or relaxed, ineffectual or affectionate, soft or hard, bright or dull, austere or lavish. It sets the tone for the design and interaction to follow.

The main entry is the one most frequently used. It should be large enough to accommodate several people and enclose a closet for guests, a powder room or lavatory and a direct access to the living area. The entry should be friendly and welcoming, but also including acoustical and visual barrier between the core space and private ones.

The service entrance should be easily accessible form the parking and directly lead to the kitchen or laundry. Frequently this entrance also serves as the family daily entrance, so it helps to keep it lighted.

At last, all house entrance should be well protected against unwanted intrusion, by adding locks or an iron door closed when the house is empty.
