When Kevin and Kate Moss’ Wauwatosa home was built in the 1930s, the front door faced Menomonee River Parkway. Though they imagine guests in the 1930s might have entered the home that way, the street- side door is more convenient than walking all the way around the house for both the homeowners and their guests.
So when Richard Scherer of Deep River Partners architects suggested swapping the kitchen and the foyer in a prospective remodel, the homeowners were thrilled. “That was a completely new idea,” Kate Moss says. “That was the thing that made all the difference in the world.”
