The front of a modern home with concrete and wood planking and a glassy entrance with an open Series 980 pivot entry door.

With a minimal and elegant front entrance, this modern home invites guests in through a large Series 980 aluminum pivot door that adds the right amount of flair. The clean lines and massive glass panels of the entrance blend with the mixture of natural elements of wood and concrete.

Dark painted homes can seem intimidating, so having the right entrance is key to making guests feel comfortable. Adding a large glass pivot entry door not only brightens this home’s entrance, but also frames views of the welcoming interior.

A glass wall with a Series 980 glass pivot door opens a master bedroom to a grassy, tree-filled backyard.

Keeping the intimacy of the master bedroom without giving up views of the lusciously green backyard made choosing a floor-to-ceiling Series 980 glass pivot door the perfect choice. This NorCal home did not shy away from massive panels of uninterrupted glass, while the pivot door provides a connection to the outdoors without needing to completely open the wall of glass.

In the center of this classic Joseph Eichler remodel, the glass-enclosed atrium provides connection to both the front and back yards. A pair of wide, parallel Series 7980 pivot doors provide a dramatic passage between the front and rear courtyards, improving the flow of the home while maintaining the mid-century modern aesthetic seen throughout.
