European Handcrafted Courtyard Gates

Mediterranean Style Custom Garage Doors & Courtyard Entry Gates

The most amazing architectural elements found throughout Europe have to be their entry doors. Doors are the focal point of entry to every home and building; therefore, selecting the right design and materials is of essence. Remember that first impressions happen only once so you want to make sure that your entry courtyard gate is conveying the right feeling to your guests.

This Mediterranean style courtyard entry gate is fabulous in more than one way. The custom design is the result of an entire project consisting of custom architectural garage doors and garden gates we designed and manufactured specifically for this home. The entry gate has a beautiful hand craved diamond panel which was borrowed from the garage door design itself. We used the same mahogany wood to build the gate and complement the front elevation aesthetics of the home. To create contrast between the solid wood garage doors and entry courtyard gate we decided to open up the top portion of the gate enough to let light through but still giving the residents privacy. This was done by using a rain glass door behind the wrought iron scroll design which plays beautifully with the rays of light that shine through the opaque glass and shimmer on the swift iron scrolling. Heavy hand-forged decorative gate pulls were used to accentuate the gate further giving it a luxurious Mediterranean Villa feel. The use of wood softens and warms up the look of the wrought iron scrolling and designer rain glass. Together, all of these elements speak beauty, functionality and traditional Mediterranean architectural style!
