As an architect I’ve always noticed that since modernist times, specifically in architecture, aesthetics has moved away from ornate decoration, ornamentation towards simplified, stripped and minimalist applications.
Domestic doors and windows especially are usually the less-emphasized of architectural features. Although I prefer a minimalist design approach, a doorway is always something that should be given as much detail and design attention as the main space in a home or a building. Other than a doorway being the first point of entry into any building, doorways are a place where a lot of different activities happen in life.
These are some images I have collected over the years of doorways.
