Breathtaking architecture is only possible with breathtaking materials. Doors and windows have the potential to be the most striking part of a piece of design, especially as the entry points to any home, high-rise, cultural or institutional project. LaCantina Doors — the leading design and manufacturing company behind the most innovative range of folding, sliding and swing door systems available — creates beautiful open spaces that blur the line between indoor and outdoor living. As large windows to the world, LaCantina’s glass doors not only enlarge a space physically, they also enhance the feeling of freedom within an architectural interior. Such freedom comes from living in an environment with more access to nature, natural light and fresh air — elements that LaCantina knows heightens the mood and increases the wellbeing of all who enter.
Have you recently completed a project using LaCantina Doors? We want to see your most innovative projects that use LaCantina to create breathtaking open spaces. LaCantina and Architizer invite all architects, interior designers, home builders, developers, interior architects and residential architects to submit their built projects for a chance to win a trip for two to attend NYC’s annual architecture and design month, Archtober. The winning designs will be featured on LaCantinaDoors.com as well as Architizer.com and shared with Architizer’s 2,000,000+ social media fans.
