Doors are standard fair in any home.  However, an awe inspiring front door can convert any blah home into an architectural wonder.  It can add warmth, pizazz and though it serves as a gateway to your abode, it is also a suggestion to what kind of interior awaits its entrants.

The curtain door is not only sick looking, but an engineering feet.  It measures 5.2m high and 1.7m wide. 60 pulleys, 80 ball bearings, a wire-rope and a counter weight are hidden inside 40 sections of 254mm-thick Burma teak.  So a few trees (understatement) died in the vein of this door, but there is no over looking its functionality and design.

When in the closed position each section stacks on top of itself.  A push on the door’s planks causes it to rotate open.  We can only hope this all happens in an effortless manner.

The curtain door was created by Matharoo Associates.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
