The numbers are offset from the wall with aluminum spacers giving them the floating look. They create nice shadows, too!

As architects for the project, we custom designed and detailed the screen. Adding a new screen to your existing home could affect the structure and the weatherproofing. My suggestion is to consult with an architect in your area to help you through the details. Best - Hector Magnus, AIA,

Hi Keely - Thanks for the kind words. The house isn't mine (though I wish!). We designed this house for a lovely couple and their family. The garage doors are custom metal swing gates made with polycarbonate sheets (interior) and wood slats. The slats interlock and, when they operate, stop traffic on the street. The "big" concept was to conceal/disguise the garage from the front view. Glad you like them. - HM

hector, these wood slats are just beautiful...what material are they made from and how we're they constructed?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Natalie Myers added this to A New Look for the Overlooked Garage Door
The nighttime glow inside this garage is obscured by frosted glass and a layer of wood slats, creating a nice interplay of hide and reveal.
John Hill added this to Great Garages: Parking, Reconsidered
This garage leaps off the screen for the translucent doors that stand out at night. But it's safe to assume that most of the time the lights are off and the wood screen predominates, just as during the day. These horizontal slats continue in a band across the front of the house, creating a strong link between the two; this is strengthened in the garage's roof doubling as a terrace for the master bedroom.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: The Many Ways to Conceal a Garage
SideThe reason the attached garage is one of the most common today is that it is thoroughly convenient. There are two primary features that make this example work so well. The first is the siding material’s matching the adjacent walls — a theme that’s repeated throughout this ideabook. The second is that the architects have minimized the mass of the garage by choosing a flat roof and using it as a gathering place — turning it into a rooftop deck. Note how your eye is naturally drawn toward the entry, located in the two-story volume, and its glazed facade. The combination of these two elements creates both convenience and clarity at the main entry.
