NEW YORK — The modern wooden door is a modern concept that doesn’t just stand tall in a cityscape.
It is the future of the city, a sleek, contemporary alternative to the stodgy wooden door and a symbol of New York City’s resurgence as a city.
Indoor wooden door designs are a way to integrate modern elements into the architectural and urban landscape, according to the architect Daniel R. Zukin.
“The idea is that you can create an indoor room that is a living space and you can use traditional materials and methods of woodworking,” he said.
“You can create a room where you can be a part of it, and you don’t need to spend any money to do that.”
Zukin has designed and installed hundreds of wooden doors in New York and New England.
The New York area is the second largest in the U.S. behind Los Angeles.
Zukiin has made many of his designs for the City Beautiful program in partnership with the New York Community Trust.
He said his most recent project was a wood-clad wood door for a home in Brooklyn.
Zukis’ most recent design for a wooded patio in Brooklyn, New York, inspired by the Brooklyn Museum, featured the city’s iconic skyline and iconic street names.
For his work on the wooden door in Brooklyn’s Lower East Side, Zukins said he got inspiration from an artist who painted a wall in the mid-1960s that featured a picture of a door with a doorbell hanging on the side.
Zukins says his most famous wooden door was painted in 2006 in the basement of a home on Broadway in Manhattan.
New York City is the fourth largest U.K. city with more than 2 million people.
