Heritage Building: Driving the Design with Detailing (Part One: Big Dining Room Door)

A new opening in a thick castle wall called for a tall order door. We had already decided to make the skirting extra high, which meant extra thick (36mm). So I could use the existing door architrave profile (19mm thick), the 40 x 55mm 'archtrave plant' was added. The door and surrounds were made from a piece of found Dorrigo Forest Cedar. 

The finished door is to the right of this photo. Everything you see in this photo (except the loose furniture) was renewed and redesigned.

next time: detailing the glass sliding door...
