Custom Mediterranean Garage Doors

Corona del Mar, CA - Mediterranean architectural home design is popular in the coast of California and Florida alike. This custom home in Orange County, CA was done beautifully with all the architectural elements you would expect from an authentic Mediterranean Villa.

The custom garage doors were done in solid Mahogany with a raised panels and hand-carved diamond panels at the bottom. The raised panels showcase the solid craftsmanship devoted to building this project consisting of two custom wood garage doors and wooden garden gates. The wood was stained by hand to brig out the rich coloration and grain structure of the handpicked mahogany lumber. Matching the home's arched garage door openings was essential to achieve a natural architectural look. Our goal is to craft and design custom garage doors that look like they belong and meant for the project at hand. Focusing on each home's existing architectural style and elements help our in-house designers create unique garage doors that evoke nothing less than architectural excellence.

Since the double-car and single-car garage doors were next to each other it was important to keep a certain degree of design consistency. Breaking the monotony of continuity was ingeniously done by selecting different decorative hardware and placement of these elements. For instance, the double-car garage door has ring pulls placed over the two most center raised panels while the single-car garage door has pull handles placed on the center trim edges to create a monotony breaking difference between both custom garage doors. Making these subtle differences between doors that are next to each other follows the old world tradition of beauty in imperfection.

Our in-house designers can create an authentic Mediterranean style look for your home with our custom designed garage doors and gates. We enjoy working on projects that involve various architectural door elements that are typically missed but make such an enormous difference.

Great details were used on the courtyard entry gate to focus all the curb appeal attention to it since it is the main entry way to the home. We accomplished this by using the delicately balanced scroll design which is unique to the gate and no other door on the house. Then a subtle arch to match garage doors was used to break the monotony of the linear entryway design.

Architectural Entry Gates in Wood & Iron

Wrought iron gates can be harsh to the eye and appearance of a home. Adding elements such as glass and wood can drastically minimize this appearance and even make a courtyard entry gate look inviting and quite elegant using wrought iron scrolling, solid woods and designer type glass.

This Mediterranean style gate incorporates three major elements that balance the overall look and feel of this exquisite courtyard entry way. First off, the beautifully stained mahogany wood convey warmth, simplicity and natural beauty while the wrought iron scrolling adds a touch of class with the delicate curves and raindrop scroll design. The glass; however, plays an important part of this gate creation by making the entire gate an airy look by allowing light to shine through and enhance the look of the wrought iron work. Though the selected rain glass allows light to show through it does offer privacy as well so combining all these features together to build this outstanding Mediterranean gate design made this project a success!

European Handcrafted Courtyard 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!

Corona del Mar, CA Custom Entry Gates

The details are the most important when designing an authentically designed entry gate. This is a closeup of the designer rain glass we used on this Mediterranean style gate which you can see behind the wrought iron scroll design. The rain glass allows light to glimmer through and bathe the iron scrolling with rays of light throughout the entire entry gate. Rain glass is a fantastic choice to give any custom gate an airy feeling while offering privacy in a stylish fashion. Since the glass is actually a fully functional door it can easily be cleaned or opened to speak easily with an uninvited guest or simply to open up the exterior view into the lavish courtyard area. No detail is spared when we design our custom gates and this Mediterranean courtyard gate located in Corona del Mar, CA is no exception. We can do the same for you but in a uniquely designed fashion just for your home and personal taste!
