What Houzz contributors are saying:

The milk-white glass curves to subtly hide the front door from the street but also to encourage movement toward it once someone is beyond the gate. The cover is generous, but the step up to the door is subtle. Nevertheless the latter is important, particularly in the change from one stone to another.
Das Milchglas biegt sich kurvenförmig zur Eingangstür hin, die durch diese Wölbung dem Blick von der Straße verborgen bleibt und gleichzeitig den Besucher in ihre Richtung lockt, sobald er das Gartentor passiert hat. Während die Tür-Verkleidung auffällig ist, fällt die flache Stufe davor kaum auf. Aber auch sie hat eine wichtige Funktion: Der Stein, aus dem sie gefertigt ist, unterscheidet sich vom Material des Pflasters und signalisiert damit den Übergang ins Haus.

door invisible from street, yet presents itself once within the gate and on pavers to door. the step provides for change of paving material and also allows slope for drainage.
