In this modern residence the architect wanted to balance openness with the ability to separate the living area of the house from the sleeping area when entertaining. To create this openness, the corridor connecting these two parts of the house was designed to have a wood ceiling. The interior designer on this project wanted to see a single uninterrupted surface spanning the entire length of the hallway.
For this project we used the floor-to-ceiling Dorsis Belport sliding pocket door and fitted it with a Dorsis Digero glass sliding door in custom gray color.
Since the pocket door frame is primarily designed for drywall installation, we made a small adjustment to account for the additional wood layer. We wanted the wood planks to come right to the recessed ceiling track. We fitted a simple L-shaped profile into the pocket door frame header – this simple modification allowed our finish carpenter to terminate the wood plank ceiling cleanly. Getting the L-shaped profile powder-coated in the same dark gray as the glass door frame allowed us to make the track minimal and almost invisible.
As always, for this project we supplied a complete end-to-end ready-to-go system, so that on-site installation was fast and easy.
