This is one of a dozen pieces I designed and fabricated for a client in Belvedere on the lagoon. The door has a redwood frame faux painted like driftwood (and to match the stonework colors of the interior Tuscan courtyard),with a trellis of vine growth in mid-panel and grasses on the lower panel in forged steel with a rust patina.

The house is an exquisite 1928 Arts and Crafts Style home,very spacious,lots of light from big windows and LOTS of rooms.Even though the house is in a more restrained style,the clients love Art Nouveau and gave me the freedom to explore that vernacular. The pool has no railing around it so the only barrier from the street is my driveway gate and what I build in the front of the house. This requires me to fabricate to code(no 4"gaps) which is a royal pain in the ass if you're trying to create beauty...
