Classic interior doors

in a completely modernized patrician villa.

These are gourmet solutions in a completely modernized version of a classic 1930s patrician villa, where Vahle supplied the interior doors for the ground floor and lower ground floor, as well as an exterior door in the lower ground floor.

Classic doors were chosen for the ground floor to support the original architecture of the house, while modern, flush doors were chosen for the lower floor.

The renovation of this villa is an excellent example of how transformation can preserve historical heritage in a sustainable and responsible way. The historical architectural heritage is carried on with the utmost respect under modern building standards, while the modern architecture and the client’s personal style unfold without losing the original architecture of the house.

Check out this villa that has similarly chosen to combine the classic and the modern.

French double doors create coherence

In the center of the house, between the kitchen/dining room and an adjacent living room, a classic French sliding door has been made as a double door. The fine details of the door appear elegant when the door is closed or partially closed, while when open, the door disappears into the wall on invisible rails.

Beveled glass is one of the beautiful details of the French door, giving the door a particularly elegant and authentic look.

Classic doors in the simplest design

Throughout the ground floor, the owner has opted for panel doors with one large panel. It is a type of panel doors that matches the 1930s architecture of the house with clean, simple lines that also reflect the architectural style of the time, where scaffolding was added to the architecture.

The beautiful Arne Jacobsen brass door handles perfectly match the architecture of the house and are a consistent choice for both classic and modern doors, creating a cohesive factor.

When the historic Hotel Randers was to be rebuilt, historically authentic single panel panel doors were also chosen.

Completely modern lower floor

The exterior architecture of the villa has been carefully preserved, but if you go downstairs, the original basement has been converted into a modern home with high ceilings. The impression on the new floor is like stepping into a modern house. That’s why owner also chose modern, flush doors that, with their simple expression, allow the other material choices on the floor and interior to stand out.

The modern doors, on the other hand, offer full comfort that matches the other exclusive material choices. The doors are made as acoustic doors with automatic seals and without threshold. The sound doors provide maximum privacy for the teenagers in the house, to the delight of both themselves and the adults in the house. Doors without thresholds make the beautiful floors look even better, as the floor tiles are continuous between rooms.
