In collaboration with our client and her contractor, Joe Tesch of Artisan Builders, we created shoji for an extensive remodel in Milwaukee WI. This fun project involved the joining of two condominiums into one grand penthouse. Many areas required shoji since our client wanted to maintain an Asian theme throughout the residence.
Our solution was to incorporate different kumiko areas in the shoji to allow a 'transom' that would look great with or without paper.
This is a different view of the same set of shoji screens with the open area. A rollover will show a close-up. These shoji are built in cherry with Amber Kinwashi paper.
Four shoji line this hallway in a complicated overlay of tracking installations. Great care was taken to keep all the horizontal elements in line when working out the sizing. There are two bi-pass shoji for the entrance to the study; the bathroom door shoji is installed with a surface mount tracking system and a hinged shoji screen for the linen closet completes the line-up.
