Look! Pocket Doors

Look! Pocket Doors

Pocket doors are an old school small space solution, and they're a feature that we'll really miss when we move out of our current apartment. Besides allowing flexible arrangements of space, they're energy efficient. In the winter, we would close our pocket doors and cut down on heating half of the apartment when it wasn't in use. In summer, they opened up such great circulation that we were able to stop using air conditioning...

We wish more modern buildings were designed with pocket doors, especially since they're so adaptable to flexible small-space living. Green architects, take note!
