    The pewter can actually go a little pink with board form. Prestige did the exterior hard surfaces and fence. Someone else did the planting, etc.

    We designed the gate. I believe 12th Avenue Iron in Seattle fabricated it but your local custom metal shop could also do it. DA

    And while I do appreciate the historical reference and use of a zaguan to separate inside from outside, I really find it lovely when the feature is used in a more contemporary architectural design.Of course there are differences between the historic and contemporary zaguans. Solid, massive and heavy wooden doors have been replaced by thinner, lighter and more transparent gates. And the compressed and dark space has been replaced with a taller, brighter and more generous transition. Still, the zaguan shows us how modern architecture can be rooted in historic forms, and how these forms can have new life breathed into them.Next: Many Cultures Make Their Marks on Mark on Mediterranean Design

    The progression through the space starts at this courtyard entry gate. Board-formed concrete gives way to ipe wood as you move into the courtyard; a steel gate allows views through to the channel glass.The concrete form's rough-sawn boards have an interesting texture and color variation, easing the transition between the concrete and horizontal boards.
