Steel and Redwood Driveway Gate
Crafted from tube steel, Corten steel, and rough redwood, this sliding gate adds security and convenience to the client's new driveway.
The post holding up the gate serves as both attachment for the guide roller and as structural support for the vintage brick wall. Using a commercial-grade electric gate opener, the client can open this 500-pound work of art with the touch of a button.
The redwood boards continue the pattern of the existing fence, with Corten steel panels substituting randomly for several of the fence boards. The Corten will be left to rust naturally, providing a warm yet contrasting detail that adds a modern touch to this 1920s home.
