Grand Pivot Door For A
Modern House

In Decatur, Georgia

Project Showcase

This new modern residential home located in Decatur, Georgia features a minimalist architectural design well-suited for the region's climate. Decatur experiences hot, humid summers and mild winters, making an open floor plan and ample natural light important aspects of the design.

The house utilizes slimline windows and accordion glass doors to bring the outdoors in and take advantage of views over the landscaped yard. Materials like concrete, aluminum, and cedar were chosen for their durability in heat and rain. Broad overhangs provide sun and rain protection while maintaining the clean lines of the structure.

A focal point of the project is the custom-made aluminum pivot door that serves as the grand entrance. Pivot doors are gaining popularity for high-end residential properties as they allow for a much larger opening than a traditional swinging door.

The door's modern thermal break aluminum frame was designed and fabricated by Doorwin to integrate with the minimalist aesthetic seamlessly. Measuring 8 feet tall, the pivot door completely opens the entryway and blurs the line between inside and outside space. Handles were custom-designed to coordinate with the minimal exterior's clean lines—here, a long steel pull in a matte black finish to match surrounding steel accents without detracting from the door's visual lightness. Horizontal rectangular panes of decorative glass woven strategically into the top third bring added privacy and brightness.

Homeowners increasingly seek bespoke pivot doors for their bold statement-making potential and ease of operation. As more community residents pursue contemporary design elements, pivot doors have grown in popularity for bringing the virtues of expansive indoor-outdoor living to the Decatur area.

Custom Handles

What’s more, all the glass used on Doorwin pivot doors are all at least with a double-pane tempered glazing sets with Low-E coatings and argon gas filled.

Full Range of Materials

For this project, a thermal break aluminum frame was chosen for its durability and virtually maintenance-free profile.
