Mid Century Modern Garage Door & Pivot Gate Project in Long Beach CA

Share with

This Mid Century Home is located in Long Beach, CA's Rancho Estates originally developed by Ross Cortese and designed by minimalist architect Cliff May. Homes such as this classic beauty are making a dazzling comeback to their original architectural essence due to their new design-savvy owners. After decades of neglect and lack of appreciation many of these California Ranch Estates are discerningly being remodeled to revive that minimalistic and fine-lined design that Cliff May originally had in mind. Some homeowners are even adding a flare of modern design elements which fuse gorgeously with these homes to create a Mid Century Modern feel that evokes beauty in simplicity.

With vast knowledge and understanding of this trend, Dynamic Garage Door designs, crafts and installs fine-lined garage doors that blend well with Cliff May's Modern Ranch Home Style. Our custom Mid Century garage doors add identity to the home but with the modern convenience of effortless usability for the homeowners. Not only do our custom garage doors offer the convenience of modern day automation and aesthetics but they are also insulated which helps make use of the garage as a multipurpose room as an option.

For this particular home we also designed a pivot entry gate which also complemented our custom-designed Mid Century Modern Garage Door giving the home a complete facelift that stunned the neighborhood! The pivot mechanism gives this Mid Century Style Gate a "floating" effect that lightens the appearance of the large proportioned gate. Both, the garage door and pivot gate, have a flare of modern design yet the integration with the home's classic architecture appear to be a perfect match.

Our in-house designers are well-rounded in a vast variety of architectural styles so our custom garage doors blend in well with each and every project we work on. Fusing Mid Century Styles with Modern design is one of our favorite type of garage door and gate projects. Contact us with your custom garage door project ideas and we will work with you on achieving the ultimate results for your home's curb appeal.

Mid Century Style Garage Door

This Mid Century style garage was lacking functionality with its original single piece tilt-up garage doors that were hard to operate and didn't seal well around the edges. Our challenge was to design a custom garage door that offered the client ease of use while adding insulation properties that the original Cliff May Style Garage Doors did not have. The goal of this custom garage door project was to preserve as much of the original framing and architectural essence of the home while adding the convenience of a modern automatic garage door that blended well with the home's Mid Century architecture. The center post seen in this picture used to be the where the original doors would hinge from but rather than remove it we decided to keep it in place for the sake of architectural preservation; nonetheless, the garage door we custom-designed is actually one double-car garage door that closes right behind the post so it looks like there are two independent single car doors as originally designed by the architect.

As a leading garage door manufacturer we are able to pick up on the important details our clients are looking for. We strive to create the most accurate architectural garage doors that will increase your home's curb appeal and value! Dynamic Garage Door is based in Orange County, CA and we do projects all over California like this Mid Century Style garage door project in Long Beach. Let us design a fabulous garage door that will look fantastic and last a lifetime!

Modern Style Pivot Entry Gate

Courtyard entry gates are an important architectural element of  your home. In some cases they may replace the home's entry door system so special attention attention should be dedicated in finding the right gate design for your home's authentic style.

This Mid Century Modern gate was custom designed specifically to flow with this Cliff May Rancho Estate in Long Beach, CA. The eclectic mix of modern design and classic architectural styles from the 50's make a fabulous blend that yield minimalistic, fine-lines that create a stunning curb appeal! Since there is a courtyard prior to entering this Mid Century home, the main entry focus was the design of the gate. We opted for a pivot gate mechanism for this modern style gate to strengthen the beauty of the simple design lines typical of Mid Century architectural styles. The use of composite, faux-stained wood, white laminate glass and stainless steel tubular handle was exclusively used to give the custom pivot gate a flare of modern architectural design while tying in the classical architectural elements already found throughout the home.

Creating unique, one-of-a-kind entry gates such as this custom pivot gate is our specialty; however, we can certainly replicate this gate design for you. Our in-house gate designers can also develop a unique custom gate design to coordinate with your particular home's style by borrowing some ideas from your home's existing architectural elements. Let our designers create for you while our craftsmen build high quality gates that will make your neighbors' jaws drop!

Mid Century Modern Pivot Gate Design

The Mid Century architectural mindset of the 50's left us with an affinity for simplistic, liveable home design that is based on the concept of minimalistic living through elegantly refined lines that are much appreciated in Modern design as well. This custom-designed modern gate evokes this simplistic design concept exquisitely as you enter this Cliff May Modern Ranch style home in Long Beach, CA. When working with the client to expand on the simplicity of the home's style we created a modern designed pivot gate that remained authentic to the Mid Century era while adding a modern flare of the homeowner's personal appreciation for the original architect's minimalistic design concept. Dynamic Garage Door's in-house designers custom design world-class architectural gates that become the envy of most neighborhoods. Our craftsmen and installers are among the best in the industry and that is why our custom gates are highly desirable within the architectural savvy community.
