My Houzz: MIllworker House
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Large sliding doors span floor to ceiling and move completely clear of the opening to create a seamless connection between indoors and out. The color and frame size of the doors match the window system above. It's hard to distinguish what is wall, what is door and what is window, because each is treated as part of a compositional whole. By increasing the height of this door to match the ceiling height, the architect has hidden the sliding track of the door elegantly within the floor thickness above, effectively dissolving the boundary between inside and out. Many types of spaces can benefit from thinking about the elements of buildings as part of a larger system. Doors specifically tailored to room dimensions are strong statements of intent in design.
The wonderfully engineered doors slide open to bring light and air through the entire house. Milled out of sapele wood to withstand the elements, they were manufactured just one block away at Bugler's millworking shop.
