Wouldn’t you like to make a grand entrance every time you entered your home? No, no band playing your favorite “theme music” as you sashay through the door. Let’s try a massive wooden door that fans out at your simple push. Architectutal firm Matharoo Associates has uniquely crafted the Curtain Door from 40 sections of thick Burma teak wood sitting between the entrance’s concrete walls. Carved to accomodate 160 pulleys, 80 ball bearings, one wire rope, and a hidden counterweight, the door fans out like a curtain when it is pushed open. When closed, the Curtain Door just looks like a flat wall made from slated wood. And from the looks of the door’s weight, no cold air will be making a grand entrance anytime soon!
