This beautiful double door has a traditional feel to it, but the double aspect opens up the hallway to increase the light feature. Couple this with the attractive glazed panels, and you have a modern twist that lends itself to this airy foyer.

Pivot Front Door in Phoenix

This front door veers away from the traditional, featuring pivot hinges to provide a unique 3D effect. The textured and frosted glazing draws the eye, while offering privacy. Coupled with the beautifully designed steel the end result is a contemporary finish. Spacious and unique, it’s perfect to complement a modern home with a large hallway.

Sunset Overlook in San Francisco

This door uses glazing to look straight into the hall, with the contrasting frame drawing the eye inwards. It’s a hint of what is to come internally, with an architecturally designed perspective adding an extra twist.
