What Houzz contributors are saying:
The 9-foot, 7-inch-tall lift-slide doors act as disappearing walls. Two of these 13-foot-wide doors open to the entry courtyard. An exterior deck extends the interior wood flooring. Marly limestone floors and walnut floors and stair treads warm the interior. "We designed the steel staircase to minimize the appearance of the structure when viewed from the side, so that the space would just flow through," DeForest says.
