Home Office Architectural Feature and So Much More
A family relocating to the Dallas area knew they could find a kitchen and bath makeover contractor, but what motivated them to choose JWA was our ability to design and build custom doors as a gateway to their home office. No longer tucked away in a corner, an office can be incorporated into the central part of the home and a striking architectural feature in any space.
Featuring an open window design, the doors allow unobstructed views in all directions with open or closed doors. More than ever, people are working from home. Entrepreneurs and executives have enjoyed this flexibility for decades but now even corporations hire remote and off-site employees.
The functionality of the room is superb as the doors provide a unique viewing solution. While open, the view extends fully across the great room to the exterior. The desks are carefully positioned to generously accommodate traffic flow while providing two work areas. The wrap around design of the desktop provides plenty of workspace and storage.
During the design phase, floor tile composition and aesthetics were given careful attention, eliminating the need for rugs. This in addition to wheelchair level switches accommodates the current and future safety needs of the family.
Upon closer look at the lighting, you may find it to be one of the most well thought out features of the renovation. A combination of LED lighting and designer lamps illuminate architecturally stunning addition from multiple viewpoints. The subtle interior cabinet lighting allows 24-hour display of the homeowner’s art pieces. The accessory lighting is especially beautiful on its own when no other lighting is used.
The office is the cornerstone of the renovation project. Knowing that all other areas can be viewed from the office, balance, and symmetry is imperative. Likewise, looking to the office from other vantage points in the home, we know it has to be spectacular. While the doors are a complete showstopper on their own, they meet competition with the beautiful Ortal fireplace that is the focal point in the adjacent grand room. These along with the geometrical lines of the kitchen create rhythm and balance.
All doors, floor tile, fireplace design, cabinets and artwork throughout the home utilize rectangular design. Warm almond mocha is the home’s predominant color, creating a perfect canvas for carefully selected art pieces.
The telescoping doors are grandly proportioned to match the adjacent 9-foot door openings. Each piece of glass is carefully fitted into the frames where intricate woodworking and painting techniques are used. Carefully notched, no opening is visible when the doors are fully closed. The innovative nesting technique utilized requires on-site hardware manufacturing. As a result, the wood and glass walls retract effortlessly into each other while keeping all hardware virtually invisibl.
Finally, to finish the distinctive look we have to overcome the obstacle of visible tracks above or below the disappearing doors. The sturdy upper track is encased with bold moldings to prevent any disruption in style and ensure a clear, clean view, and no lower track is employed.
