We just installed the plywood wall panels in the double height foyer of our latest Riverbluff home.  Routed into the panels is a subtle map of Charlottesville.

Our client, and soon to be new homeowner in 3 weeks time, came up with this great idea as a fun and tactile way to welcome people into the home.  We painted red dowels to represent various points of interest, including the location of the house and the local elementary school among others.  Since the main living space is on the 2nd floor, it’s great to give reason for visitors to pause in the voluminous, glass filled entry before heading up the stairs.
