doors and windows
hinges are too big
door and surrounding wall are considered as one design. The sliding door blends into the wall behind it, such that when it's closed, the wall is one consistent surface (minus the light coming in between the slats). The hardware is a bit of a contrast with the wood, but it is simple and elegant
This sliding door at a kitchen straddles the line between architecture and art, functional and decorative. It is made up of six pieces, with one gap at the top for light and air. A couple pieces overlap the rail, making the latter part of the overall composition.
When open the door covers the wall next to the opening. This is clearly intentional, given how the closet next to the front door adds a couple feet to that length of wall; take out the closet, and the door sticks out. With the furniture we can see that the room is an office, and the door allows for privacy with some light still coming from both sides (window and living room).
