June 2016, we found a charming white building in South Etobicoke that used to be a machine shop. The building belonged to the same family for 60 years. We thought it was perfect to make it our brick and mortar, with the showroom in the front and the workshop in the back.
We recently finished solid white oak slabs doors for a third floor master bedroom in Riverdale, Toronto. These doors cover each of the openings on this floor: top of staircase, walk-in closet, bathroom, and the bedroom. A paradise in your own home.
This house was designed and built by ModernKind Inc
I had a little visit with the new NXL Architect office a few days ago at 31 Scarsdale Rd.
We made the sliding doors that covers almost the entire strip of the office's right side where the board rooms are. We even made the sliding hardware specifically for these doors as they were quite heavy being 2-1/4" thick of Baltic birch plywood with fluted glass panels.
I couldn't be more happy to see such a beautiful office that seems more like a playground as it was done so thoughtfully and creatively. We are so proud to have worked on this project.
We did a custom library ladder hardware while building a 16' high shelving for a client. We've been asked before but always said no. We're finally coming out of our no to library ladders and here it is! ***Click on link below to go to a video

And old factory in New Market has been turned info beautiful living lofts. But what is missing in these lofts are the real barn doors that truly transforms the space. We retrofitted three openings in this two-bedroom unit, two openings with double doors, and one single door closet, and home couldn't be cozier.

Located on a residential street minutes from Summerhill subway station, this amazing optical clinic (summerhilloptometry.com) will having you seeing all things beautiful! They have the most exotic and beautiful glasses frames I have ever seen. And all these frames are sitting there in this stunningly hip space---eclectic and elegant at the same time. And to top off the beauty of the space, Dr. Naeem has asked us to create doors to cover an unsightly nook that houses electrical panels.
Wanting to replace a old sliding door for the front closet, our client asked for our opinion. After seeing the space, nothing speaks louder than a solid walnut slab door with horizontal planks on the stainless steel barn door hardware. At the end of the loft is a built-in bookshelf that was also made of walnut, so we thought we would have a dialogue going with the walnut pieces. As it turns out,the newly renovated kitchen area also has walnut cabinetry.
Oh, and did I mention the art? Both Rock and I were so overwhelmed by the art in this loft that was hard to focus on the question at hand -- the barn door. It's like going to a gallery, except this was in someone's home, and so the curated collection was much more interesting . No wonder this loft was featured in Designlines magazine.
The walnut flows nicely with the orange front door. The loft is being re-design by Eduardo and his team at www.aagency.ca. I like the orange so much I called Eduardo to ask for the code. We ended up painting the door we displayed at the Interior Design Show this orange.
Building, making, and constructing a door is what we normally do, but sculpting one and have it revolve in the middle of a house takes a bit more work than we're used to. But our client wanted just that. The door then became a sculpture and a room divider for this modern home in Bayview and Steeles The door is 7" thick, over 6' wide and 7' high.
Take a look for yourself and see if this is really a barn board door or a barn board sculpture?
