Design & Engineering
If a design has not been selected or provided then Old World Design can help find a style for your home. We then prepare an engineered elevation to assure that the designed will meet or exceed the Florida building code for a "One of a Kind Entryway".
The entire process generally takes between 2-3 weeks to complete. This will allow you to view your newly designed door using AutoCad fully detailed so you can understand exactly what your door will look like before it is manufactured. Drawings will be sent to the contractor, builder, or interior designer for final approval.
As the design boom of the '70's and '80's gathered momentum, the first thing many noticed about a house was the innovative use of decor and dimension. Technology and materials progressed rapidly, and people building homes found themselves with a variety of elements and areas by which to define themselves.
However, now that eclecticism has yielded to reflection, a home's focus has counter revolutionized.
More specifically, sturdy intricately handcrafted doors that evoke Renaissance style, like those produced by Old World Design.
Castles for kings. A mysterious medieval fortress. Grand entryways to the ancient walled cities of Renaissance Europe. These are only a few of the images that Old World Design doors draw to mind. Yet they are more than homages to a period in time long since passed.
They are functional pieces of decoration that lend character and sophistication to celebrated homes and businesses worldwide, including Williams Island's Island Club, Fisher Island, and the Breakers Resort in Palm Beach.
History, as it relates to design, becomes less a marker of a particular era than it does a conduit to what's modern now. Old World Design doors, by being rooted in history, therefore are equally as relevant to homes of classic lineage as they are to those with contemporary influences.
Regardless of the degree to which the door is manipulated and accessorized, it is at once elevated to the position of the home's focal point. A functioning object of art that welcomes, entices, invites.... A modern element with a vintage appeal.
With the look of an aged, vintage patina of European ancestry, doors from Old World Design are for both exterior and interior purposes, front entryways or wine cellars, for example. For that reason, door sizes always vary. Yet the style is every bit as effective in situations that require only a little space, to the grandest of entryway systems. In each circumstance, the doors bridge the old and the new, becoming a connecting point between the past and the present, the ancient and the modern. To that end, Renaissance style doors are as relevant now as they were in centuries past. At a time when individualism and versatility are at the helm of the industry, doors from Old World Design are notable in that they offer both.
