Mid Century architecture relates to glass doors

Did you know that interior glass doors were a big part of mid-century architecture & design?

1950’s Architectural Style, Mid Century Modern basically describes pre- and post- WWII developments in modern design.

The architecture and urban development from around 1933 to 1965 reflected organic and less formal than international styles of design at the time.
The basic components of home architecture during this period were simplicity, the use of natural shapes and letting the light from outside …inside!
Studio Schicketanz posted this on Houzz showing how much glass is included in
this mid-century design. The dining room is flooded with natural light.
The Sliding Door Company’s stacking glass room divider also lets in an abundance of natural light while it opens up the whole floor plan. Three sliding glass panels quietly glide open & shut easily.
In the 1950s and 60s, the structures had ample windows and open floor plans with the idea of opening up the interior spaces to allow the sunlight in which boosted mood and gave the home a warm feeling. In addition, many mid-century homes utilized the then revolutionary Post and Beam architecture rather than the bulky support walls in favor of walls made of glass. Function was also just as important with emphasis placed on targeting the needs of the average American family.
Aluminum horizontal beam above the sliding glass doors leaves the top open to share lighting, air conditioning and heating, saving energy and money all year round.

From mid-century to today’s modern, open spaces are clutter-free with abundant natural light.
