Bypass Panel Glass Doors for Closet in a Victorian Home Downtown Toronto

Hello closet doors! Being without closet doors can be unsettling, especially if your closet is not the most mine. But our client's closet seems quite neat, hence he is so bold to go with the frosted glass panels (I wouldn't even venture there). These are doors on the telescopic bypass hardware. We had to install this because it is tricky installing door so that they slide and nestle on the adjacent wall.

You can still make out what's inside, but it does a neat job at diffusing closet stuff into something that might look artsy.

Notice the exposed brick wall, very nice with the sliding barn doors.



The Old Joists gets Re-purposed into this Beautiful Barn Door

When our client decided to demolish their house and rebuild from scratch, they couldn't bear to throw away the old joists that held up the house for all these years. They instead contacted us and ask if a slab barn door can be made with their joists, and the result... is a beautiful, sentimental, and historically important piece of art that happens to also function as a sliding door for their hallway.

These joists were old old pine. They were milled down to make a slab door, but still retained enough character to speak to the history of the house.

Can you imagine how beautiful it is to have this is a completely new and modern space?

MJ Architecture is Home to a Sliding Slab Door

Going into an architect's home, one feels different, everything just seems like it was meant to be there.  There is a sense of confident in every piece you see in the space, from the lighting to an old chair, and of course, to a 9 feet tall sliding slab door as the one you see here in MJ Architecture's home. The place was redone, with the hallway wall ripped down, and the sliding slab door here is the entrance to the dinning room.  Notice the flooring, the patch up hardwood running the opposite direction is where the wall used to be.  I love how it is done so purposefully, conserving the history that there used to be wall.

My personal favourite style is electric, and this just does it!  It is so much more interesting and fun to be a space like that.  But I think there is a skill in matching things that don't really "match"

We made this slab door using solid 1-3/4" thick molding grade pine and white wash it to give that nice simple finish.  The heavy Metal barn door hardware accessorizes the door
