Laguna Beach Vacation Home entry way
Set on sliders, the full-height glazed doors open up to seamlessly connect the art studio with the outdoors.
Behind a sliding barn-style door is a bathroom with a shower and toilet.
Bluestone slabs float across the reflecting pond, which was inspired by Engels’s travels in Japan.
In the entrance, a team with the general contracting firm Martha uncovered an abstract mural that Engels painted himself and then plastered over. He also made the geometric door handle. Simon speculates that Engels sourced the marble, found all over the house, from Expo ’58, after the pavilions had been dismantled.
The entrance to Allied Maker's new showroom in Tribeca, New York puts their meticulously crafted lights on immediate display.

The pattern of the decorative screen for the stairs is repeated on the fence that surrounds the house.
The entrance to the bathroom is tucked between two bookshelves.

A massive folding glass wall opens to connect an open-plan living area to the outdoors.
In the master bedroom, the sloping ceiling of the original structure was kept intact.
Painted in the same warm navy as the exterior walls, the two solid-wood living room doors create a seamless link between the living room and terrace.
Hope stripped the house, but retained the foundations and frame. This allowed her to open the property up to the view of the valley by using fully-glazed doors.
The light crosses the apartment entirely thanks to two large triple glazed windows allowing plenty of light to pour into the room. The entrance and bathroom are on gound floor whereas the living space is on the upper floor. The bed was placed on a pedestral which can be separated by six sliding wooden screens. This enables various configurations and hierarchy of privacy. When the screens are closed, reading, watching a movie, or having a nap turn the night area into a real urban cocoon. Open or closed the sliding screens dialogue playfully with the room and act like an elegant and subtle light box. This partition system makes the space flexible for different living scenarios. In addition to the screens, the elevation of the bed on  a functional step helps to make a distinction between the day and night area. The urban coocon enjoys a northwestern orientation, overseeing the pedestrian courtyard and keeping the distance with the street nocturnal brouhaha.
Kitchen Door Detail
House in an Orchard rests upon a reinforced concrete foundation and resembles a mushroom with its organic shape.
"The sliding door, when you open it, opens a large chunk of living space that more than doubles the perceived space," says Christoph Kaiser. "The big aperture moves and connects you with the lush, desert garden."
Sunlight floods the interiors through the greenhouse volume.
Top-mounted sliding timber doors close the guest room off from the living room for privacy. When not in use, the sliding doors stack flush against the right wall.
A new addition with a steel structure clad in hardwood screens was created at the rear of the house.
A wood pivot door with a recessed, custom-cut coir doormat.
A glass entry connects the addition and offers a clear view of—and direct access to–the natural landscape surrounding the site.
A glimpse through the main house from the living area to the study area beyond.
A buffer space between the living area and the front yard.
The wood was simply stained and left in its natural state, and reduced the need for more costly structural steel.
The stepping stone, like the skylight, was inspired by zen architecture. “In most traditional wooden houses and temples in Japan, the house is lifted above the garden, and the transition is always marked by a sculptural stepping stone,” says Bjerre-Poulsen. “We used the same principle between the old house and the addition.”
Wide, low ceilings frame views toward the horse arena, while also creating visual tension between the interiors and the lush landscape outdoors.
A curved corridor with lowered ceilings serve as the threshold between the home's two wings.
The front door is accessed by a 'floating' concrete bridge that bisects the two wings of the house.

The entry floor now boasts the striking Hex Clip pattern from Clé Tile. Horner also installed custom shelving and a floating bench, both fabricated from birch plywood.
The entry was ready for an overhaul. Says Horner, "When we first walked up to the house we knew we had to change the front door. It had such a perfect layout for a pivot door—it became our main focus." A solid panel door and sidelight were replaced with a large, glass pivoting door, bringing in much-needed light to the entry.
The angle of the wall also enables the home to capture the ever shifting light entering from the southern side of the building.
A Japanese-style tatami room is located at the left corner of the ground level, and connected to a small outdoor terrace.
This metallic gold door shines bright to welcome guests to L.A.'s Hotel Covell. Against a backdrop of more textural, aged elements like brick walls, it's a chic, smooth, glam touch.
A sliding wooden door marks the entrance to the interior courtyard of the home. The residence consists of three connected volumes of different heights wrapping around the center of the podium, and the spaces inside them carefully scaled: small enough for introspection, and large enough to take in the landscape.
An attentive sensitivity to site played into nearly every aspect of both the exterior andinterior spaces of the home. Architect Peter Rose collaborated with landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh, who worked to craft and maintain the wild, organic feel of the environs. Will Parry, a local builder, custom-fabricated all of the sustainably harvested Spanish cedar-and-glass windows and skylights throughout. Here, a vertical-swinging window at the end of the entry hallway opens directly to a lush expanse of vegetation.

Dunbar and Astrakhan's low-cost, high-impact tour de force is a storefront facade constructed from salvaged double-insulated window glass panels arranged in a shingle pattern.
By scouring shops, sales, and auctions, George Marrone amassed a giant trove of postwar furniture. He and his partner, Michael Nocera, applied that same work ethic to a 1959 home in Wilmington, Delaware, which they patched up over two years. The couple’s bulldogs stand guard at the flagstone entrance. The door, still with its Space Age knobs, is painted Flaming Torch by Behr. The brass wallhanging above the landing is by C. Jeré.
Conceived as a glass wall or window that could swing open rather than a typical door, the resulting glass-and-metal piece is so heavy that it required its own foundation! Thanks to clever engineering by Sand Studios, even seven-year-old Macy can operate the 2,000-pound door.

Ample glazing blurs the distinction between indoors and out.
A custom pivot door by Archispec opens onto a foyer with a poured-concrete floor. The oil painting at right is by Derrick Buisch.
A pivoting door, also made of larch, provides a shortcut to enter the structure as an alternative to the main courtyard entrance.
Sliding doors cast shadows across the concrete floor.
Doonan stands next to the front door.  “We have flamboyance, and we’re not inhibited about anything. Gray Organschi gave [the house] that intellectual rigor needed to make it beautiful. We were well matched.”—Resident Simon Doonan

Villa H | sliding doors blend in- and outdoor space
In the main living space, a glass-and-steel bridge is suspended above the kitchen area, becoming a viewport that draws the eye towards the lake.
