Modern Spanish Style Garage Door and Motorized Driveway Gate in L.A.

Share with

Los Angeles, CA - One of the neatest things about living in LA is the variety of people, cultural influence and, of course, the architectural diversity throughout the region. This 1920's Spanish Colonial home was in dire need of a new garage door and driveway gate that would bring life back to the its stunning original architectural style. The home boasts exquisite Spanish architectural elements throughout the property including beautiful Spaniard tiles, various iron forged fixtures, brick work, terracotta roof tiles and like every proper Spanish Colonial home, white plastered walls which make the perfect backdrop for our custom garage doors and gates.

Since the garage area is mainly used as a playroom for the resident children, the client wanted to make sure there was plenty of natural light shinning through the garage door's windows. Our in-house door designers came up with a fabulous idea by adding an extra row of clear glass panes which would bring more than enough light into the room. The bottom panel of the custom wood garage door features solid raised panels which keep the children safely playing inside. Our door designers came up with a modern Spanish style garage door that beautifully blended in with the old charm of the home yet added a fresh new look to the home's curb appeal. Paired with a side-mounted Liftmaster Jackshaft opener, operating the door is conveniently easy!

The custom sliding driveway gate was completely handcrafted in wire-brushed alder wood which gives it that authentic rustic look and feel you would expect from a Spanish Colonial wooden gate. Beveling the edges of the trim added a modern twist to the rustic Spanish style of the gate but also protects the gate from retaining water and eventually rotting the wood. To bring out the beauty and depth of the wood's natural grain a beautiful oil rubbed finish was hand applied also sealing the wood's pores with oil to protect it from moisture and rain. Paired with a sliding gate Liftmaster electric opener the driveway gate is easily operated at the push of a button. 

Using various wood textures, finishes and slightly variant design styles adds interest to a home rather than saturating it in excessive continuity that seems overkill. Asymmetry does wonders and defines a unique style. This is the type of architectural richness you want to achieve particularly in Old World European design!

Let Dynamic Garage Door create a  stunning door project for your home too. Our in-house designers have a wealth of architectural door design knowledge and will make sure your home is uniquely fitted with truly, authentic architectural garage doors and gates.

Modern Spanish Style Wood Garage Door

Los Angeles, CA - Garage conversions are some of our favorite projects to work on because they let our creativity flow along with the client's needs and architectural aesthetics involved in the garage door design process. Take a look at this custom wood garage door with its Modern Spanish Style consisting of large windows and raised panels.

The Spanish style garage door features two rows of clear glass which showers the inside of the garage with tons of natural light. Since the garage was converted into a playroom it was important to have plenty of natural light coming in and the ability to see outside into the patio/drive area from inside the room. Solid raised paneling was used at the bottom of the garage door giving it a bit of character and the appearance of bi-folding doors. Beautifully finished in smooth surfaced mahogany, the garage door complements other interior doors of the home. Inside, it is equipped with an electric side-mounted jackshaft opener which operates the garage door smoothly when needed or when the entertainment space needs to be expanded to the exterior.
