Hi, I quite like the design, and functionality of the doors. Particularly the "borrowing" of light is important and I like how it enhances the interior environment. Diffused light makes for a more comfortable space as you mentioned reducing eye strain.

Are the doors custom made? If not where can they be purchased?

I am guessing that that the exterior windows must be maintained for the buildings heritage value. As light is critical, what is done for comfort and energy efficiency with the outdoor windows; particularly to decrease the heat and cold penetration?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: Tribeca Through and Through
Elements from the kitchen canopy were repeated in these ten foot tall blackened steel and glass pocket doors, which separate the master bedroom from the main living space. "The glass here is also a frosted wire glass to give an interesting shadow and texture," Kim says. "When the doors are pushed into the wall pocket, the unit has full north and south exposures. In New York, we're always conscious of southern exposures in homes so we can maximize the light." Even when the doors are closed, light moves through from the master bedroom to the main living space.
Becky Harris added this to 5 Incredible Home Conversions
A tricky part of renovating these kinds of spaces is keeping the open feeling and making the most of the light, while also allowing for some privacy. This transparent part of the wall is actually pocket doors, which can open up the main space to the bedroom. See the rest of this space
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: How to Borrow Light
Because translucent materials reflect, absorb and scatter light, they make great walls for borrowing light. The degree of translucency will affect just how much light is scattered. The effect is similar to obscuring direct sight but preserving the passage of daylight. Diffused light is comfortable and limits eyestrain.

Translucency can be achieved in a variety of ways. Glass can be sandblasted or acid etched. It can also be textured or laminated. With laminated glass, a plastic interlayer lends a translucent effect similar to that created by sandblasting but without the marking characteristics. There are applied films to consider too.
