Harlem Residence Children's Room

Instead of providing separate bedrooms for the two young children, we designed a single large bedroom with a sliding wall of Douglas fir. Half of the space can be configured as a playroom, with the children sleeping on the other side. The playroom can also function as a guest room.

Sure. The ceiling fixture is the Dioscuri from Flos. The glass is high quality and gives a very nice quality of light.

The doors you made are great. Where did you get the track/hardware?

Sorry for my delay responding and thanks for the compliment. We typically use Hafele for all our pocket/sliding door hardware. Usually the Hawa or Hawa Junior depending on how much the doors weigh. Hafele makes a very fancy track for telescoping doors. As you pull the first (leading) door, a gear attached to the track pulls the second (following) door until the door opening is entirely closed. The version in this photo is just two tracks mounted next to each other, one for each door. Hope this helps.

Actually the hardware is manufactured by Hawa (www.hawa.com) and distributed by Hafele. You can find information on the HAWA-Telescopic at: http://application.hawa.ch/productfinder/Src/Productfinder/dsp_detail.aspx?artID=10672

These are the #35, which are about 14" in diameter. I'd love to use the even larger ones sometime. By the way, I should have also mentioned that the designer Jasper Morrison has a Glo-Ball that's similar, pretty wonderful, and worth looking at. It's not a perfect sphere.

which is the width of the wall to this double pocket door
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Mabbott Seidel Architecture
The thickness of this wall is 9 1/2" because the doors are each 2 1/4" thick. This is thicker than normal because the doors are so large. A more typical pocket door may be around 6 1/2" thick, although there are companies that sell track kits that can fit in a 2x4 stud wall. Hope this helps.

Hi James, Although I don't have a photo showing a good example, you can definitely run shutters only part way up a window. It's a nice way of creating some privacy while still allowing sunlight through the upper section. Hope this helps.

Where can I find more information about the mat used in the children's bedroom?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The mat is actually made of Flor tiles. We used three colors - two reds that are a nice compliment to one another, and one gray to anchor the room. We used a similar scheme for another playroom design but in different colors. Here are a couple of images showing parts of the room (sorry nothing showing the whole layout). Hope this helps.

Sure, the painting is by Susie Reiss. Coincidentally, she has a show up in NYC right now. The gallery is called Coohaus and here's a link to the show. http://www.coohausart.com/ Her website is http://susiereiss.com/

where can I buy this door

What Houzz contributors are saying:

3. What is the life span of the product, and can it be reused or recycled? An important part of going green is thinking about our impact on future generations. Is the product in question high quality and built to last? And where will it go when it reaches the end of its usefulness? Some materials (such as wood and metals) can be easily reused or recycled. Other products, like Flor carpet tiles, can be sent back to the manufacturer through a recycling program.
Natalie Myers added this to Discover the Ins and Outs of Pocket Doors
They will not create acoustic privacy. As gorgeous as these modern extra-wide doors are, the sounds of children playing are sure to be heard in the adjacent spaces. That's not so good if you're working or sleeping, but it's very good if you're taking care of small children.
Laura Gaskill added this to 18 Ways to Allergy-Proof Your Home
11. Streamline kids' spaces. Children's rooms accumulate stuff like nowhere else in the house. But if allergies are a problem, having lots of toys — especially soft toys — everywhere will only make things worse. Try rotating out toys to keep things fresh (and neat), and store extras in an out-of-the-way closet. Washing stuffed animals when possible can also help keep dust at a minimum.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to The Secret to Pocket Doors' Success
Custom pull. If you simply can’t find hardware you like, consider a custom solution like this one. The architect has carved out a flush pull from the face of the door and configured the door edge in a way that’s easy to grab and slide.
