Designer's Description: A primary goal of the remodel was to make the whole house accessible so one could view the magnificent garden and outside areas from all rooms of the house. While the open floor plan is wonderful for entertaining, the owners also wanted to be able to section the space into distinct rooms. This was accomplished by using three sets of sliding glass doors provided by The Sliding Door Company. When open, two set of the doors slide into pockets in the walls. When closed, the doors divide the kitchen, living room, dining room, and den into separate, intimate spaces. The effect of the doors is accentuated by the use of sandblasted glass and the application of vertical dividers, giving the doors a Shoji screen effect in keeping with the many Japanese elements of the house.
