An intentional mashup of traditional and modern design. A blend of old and new with both rustic and refined touches. In the Phoenix desert.
Several multi-slide doors appear in the Modern Farmhouse in Phoenix.
When the two multi-slide doors are opened, the kitchen, dining, and living space becomes one with the outdoors.
Multi-slides open to a huge covered outdoor living space.
Indoor-outdoor living at its finest when the home’s multi-slide doors are wide open.
Three 12-foot-wide, three-panel Series 600 Multi-Slide Doors create that seamless transition, both in the great room and the master suite. Two of the pocketing multi-slides open to the huge covered outdoor living space, which backs up to a swimming pool and uncovered sitting area complete with a fireplace. The master suite multi-slide leads to an auxiliary backyard patio and grassy yard beyond it.
A seamless merging between the indoors and outdoors.
Arizona sunshine fills the master suite.

“You’d think that with three multi-slide door systems, a large pivot door, and all the patio doors and operable windows that the building would leak like a sieve,” says Knutson, referring to the energy efficiency of Western Window Systems’ products. “But these doors and windows do a great job of keeping the building tight. When it’s 110 degrees outside, we wanted the A/C to stay in and the heat to stay out.”
