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?

Our first time at the IDS, and we are pretty excited! We'll be part of the featured exhibition "Maker". Come and check out what we have to offer! Our booth number is 2225 at the Metro Toronto Conventional Center. The show is from Jan 23 to Jan 25. Please see more info on IDS website http://www.interiordesignshow.com/ Just like our home, our booth is really small, in fact the smallest one there--but we compensate.
Here is us setting up for the show

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.

A charming house in Bloor West Village gets a complete gut from top to basement bottom, and renewed with a new love, the barn doors! The space was designed by architect Kate Harrison (www.khadesign.ca) and architect Andrew Edmundson with smart space saving ideas and a tons arresting features. The barn doors of course act as both: space saving and arresting features. All four bedrooms up stairs have sliding doors for the closets, with modern grey and see through slats doors. All doors are designed by Kate Harrison, made and installed by us! We also got a chance to work with a really great contractor, Kazik (you know how hard it is to find one) from Kazik Contracting and Renovations LTD.
So, after 14 barn doors installed, I can safely say love is in the house (that's love for the barn doors, if that's wasn't made clear from the beginning).
