Sliding Panels Help to Create a Customizable Floor Plan in the Noho Loft
Throughout the Noho Loft's design, the homeowners needed a way to make their small spaces look larger and feel more functional, so designers had custom fabricated steel doors and sliding paneling made to help with this. Since many of the doors are not fixed, they allow the homeowners to customize their space to fit their needs at the moment, and because the doors slide rather than swing, they take up less room in the design so the home has more functional floor space.
