Utilizing the Crittall Corporate W20 profiles allowed for minimal sight lines that are highly sought out in historically accurate architectural designs. The Crittall door product also provides superb weather protection and unsurpassed minimal maintenance for lifetime material longevity in an uncovered, unprotected exposed South and East oriented groups of transomed doors and sidelights in these two dining and great room spaces.

This Palladian inspired residence – in the heart of University Park – a quiet, inner suburb of Dallas, Texas, takes advantage – especially in these two significant rooms, of the views and vistas just outside. In addition, the muntin detailing of the traditional lapped bar intersections and the crescent shaped lockbox of the Crittall assembly single door and sidelights with arched transoms integrate smoothly with the limestone ashlar and shaped limestone architrave exterior detailing.

These significant, consistent features of the Crittall door products allow for seamless, time-honored architectural detailing that the architect envisioned to enhance and complete the design package of this Palladian inspired residence.
