It's a take-off-your-shoes front entry.

Going Shoeless in the house appealed to Amy and Paul Luersen of Seattle as a way to help keep floors clean. Adapting this Eastern custom to the West, Architect Kazuyuki Murata redesigned the Luersens' front entry into a good spot for shedding and storing shoes.

A 5- by 5-foot tile pad just inside the front door marks the place to stop. Bordering it, a two-tier walnut storage cabinet matches nearby flooring and defines the entry without cutting off light or views into adjoining living areas. The cabinet section nearest the front door is 40 inches tall, the lower part 24 inches high. In both, holes in the front of the bottom shelf allows air to circulate.
