Custom Steel Bi-Fold Doors and Frosted Glass Add Privacy to Noho Loft's Street Level Entry
The Noho Duplex in New York City has street level entry. With the windows on the front exterior of the space, this left little room for privacy in the home's previous design. The homeowners wanted an industrial feel for their home, so they wanted to stick with a more modern design and didn't want the clutter of having to hang curtains to get privacy, so designers created a two-fold privacy plan. First, they replaced the homes existing windows with frosted paned windows to obscure the view from the street. Then, they added custom fabricated, full height, glazed steel bi-fold doors with frosted glass panels to create a sort of "foyer" in the space. These doors are retractable, so once the family is in for they night, they can fold up the doors and enjoy the open spaces in their home.
From the street level, designers replaced the home's original glass windows with frosted glass to add a layer of privacy to the home without the bulk of adding window treatments. Wrought iron bars add security, while complementing the sleek, modern style of the interior spaces.
