Persevering with contemporary design details for a stunning finish
Single Leaf , Double leaf
Deuren was hired by an architect with plans to design and build his own home. He had very specific ideas in mind for the structural and cosmetic design of the house. He wanted shadow gap door frames to feature throughout the build but was coming up against resistance from builders who were advising him against this labour-intensive work.
A shadow gap door frame gives the impression the door is built into the wall – it has a feature groove between the frame and the wall with no need for architraves. We were able to step in where others had advised against the shadow gap effect.
Door openings were framed and plastered and the door added in. The client specified how he’d like some doors with shadow gap frames and some with regular frames so it was important our work was consistent to meet the overarching theme holding the design together. The internal walls were built in rough stone so the frames had to be cut around the rough stonework. The client decided on Gio door sets throughout with a Satin Walnut finish, which looks fantastic in situ thanks to all the detail in the grain.
This project was commissioned in partnership with GridThirteen.
