Can I just take a moment here to applaud the design of this space.
A wall turned into door/door turned into wall. Not only is it practical and sexy in its design but it also connects two rooms without having to use and incorporate the visual obstruction of a door.
There are times I find that (at least in N. American society) there is an over use of doors. I personally do believe that they are overrated as they get in the way of beautiful design. There are rooms in my home that at the very least I wish I had a sliding door that would disappear into the wall when opened instead of having it interfere with the flow of the view and design of the space.
How do you feel about doors? Do they hinder your design aspirations? -tM
