Nursery with French Pocket Doors

 A baby was on the way (she's a girl!), and the clients wanted an entire space in the apartment sectioned off and built as a a nursery. The special French Doors were chosen to fit the style of the apartment. The overhead Transom Window was salvaged and refurbished in order to give light and air to the room.

The doors were installed as pocket doors to slide into the walls on either side.

 Inside the nursery an opening (little blurry) was made to match the other arched openings of the apartment. It leads to an existing closet that now is accessible from the room. Shelves were added to serve as a walk in closet.

This photo (better) shows how the added interior arch matches the existing one in the hallway.

The window can open and close.
