The door itself is made of white oak and was fabricated by a friend. The slats on the lower half of the door put me in mind of a sunburst, but Michl says, "We went through 40 different designs, and lots and lots of sketches. We wanted something simple, but not too simple. I didn't want a literal translation of the odd angles above in the door. I wanted something that had its spirit without trying to be the awning."
