DO | OR
Doors innately imply thresholds of joinery between interior, exterior, entry, and exit. The unique ability to join separate things is a door's most significant expression, and in capturing this moment of connection occurs a fascinating opportunity for correspondence of material.
A small, tudor-style cottage on the corner of Gillespie Street in Starkville, Mississippi, provided a point of departure to explore the possibilities of expressing this joinery. The design of a system of joinery produced a door capable of clearly communicating a language of this cottage - a dimensional layering of materials on the precipice of contradiction, highlighting a rather violent moment of elemental contrast through the human touch (the handle). In essence, the layering of material so prevalent within the cottage walls is revealed through a threshold of joinery and transition. Ultimately, specific attention to each unique panelized condition within the door produced this fundamental perception.
