Architects & Building Designers
Prairie House contemporary

Prairie House

These newly retired clients were looking to build a long-lasting, eco-friendly home that fit their lifestyle and budget. By implementing some of the owners’ existing items with fresh concepts and environmentally conscious strategies and material selections, workshop created a structure that exceeded all expectations. The building is oriented toward a large backyard and the interior was kept white to maximize light and flow and to support the owner’s art collection. Although one of a kind in this suburban residential neighborhood, the home does not clash with its surroundings. This house is striking in its simplicity and allows for comfortable living and entertaining, a request made by the owners at the beginning of design.

These are mounted "barn door style". If you start here
you will see different types of the necessary hardware, some of which resemble this.

9. Easy to use. Doors, like everything in a home you plan to grow older in, should be easy to operate. The door should open or close with a simple push or pull and provide an opening large enough for us to get through easily.

Barrett isn't sure whether he wants anything done to our closet system in the master bedroom. We weren't happy to hear that the top slide rail couldn't be removed (??) but using doors with this kind of hardware could be a possibility. It's all up for discussion. At the moment B and I are not in real agreement about the whole thing. I do not want to lose any space inside the closets by having a bunch of built-ins.
