Perfect Perch for the Pet Pooch

As architects and builders, we deliberate over every aspect of a home. From the overall size, proportion, and feel of the space, we try to think through every scenario for the people for whom we are building the project. We proceed from design through construction using a rigorous process that takes into account even the smallest of details. While we often consider spaces and materials for pet use and durability, it’s a true pleasure when a detail we’ve considered for the two-legged members of the family also becomes a favorite spot for the four-legged ones.

Large, wood front door with pivot function

Sophisticated Entry Using a Large, Pivoting Front Door

Pivot doors don’t need a frame around the door or a threshold. The clearance area is also reduced from a swing door because having an offset pivot reduces the distance the door swing will project into the space. The door can be designed to go edge-to-edge with the wall to seamlessly blend together. For our client’s home, we used Douglas Fir on the door to mirror the size and pattern of the boards used on the adjacent board-formed concrete wall. The entry door also has a soft-closing mechanism, so that our client’s children do not get their fingers jammed.
