I had a customer who wanted walls to her rooms that could “disappear.” This was my solution. For each set of doors the door on the right swings open (away from the photo into the bedroom) and the door on the left is a pocket door. The doors are lacquered oak with translucent plexi. The swinging doors have a piano hinge and a creative support structure ( one of then is 6’ wide).

It was a very challenging project!

looks great – I’m trying to do something similar to a home office, how thick is the translucent Plexiglas? any detailed plans? I might like to borrow your idea but only for a single opening .

Terrific design, they really go with the open architecture of the room

Very nicely done. I like the soft line and warmth of the frosted glass combined with the dark frames. Fits well in the space.

wow, this is amazing looking as well as I am sure a challenge to get them swing even for that size. Well done
