Gate and EntrancesGate and Entrances Img

Elegance, security, and privacy—the entrance gate is the public face of your private space. The well-designed gate is a
canvas in metal, from elegant minimalism to a nod to the history of architecture and design.

With so many possibilities, there is never a reason to have an inelegant driveway gate to welcome you home.

 

 

 

 


Top Job Award Beech Tree Gate
Graceful branches form the upper frame of this gate, and the textured trunk splits into two halves as the gate opens. This gate has been copied and modified, because the essential gesture of the tree in iron is an opportunity for sculpture in the landscape.
Award winner.

Top Job Award Dakota Gate
Careful reconstruction of the landmark gate at the main Dakota entrance at 72nd St. created this 5-part pedestrian gate for the inner courtyard.  Renaissance scrolls, rosettes, massive faux hinges, and the crowning finial were forged in pure iron. Acanthus leaves and rosettes were cast in silicon bronze from repoussed copies of the originals, and electronics were hidden behind a panel of Renaissance sheet metal work.
Award winner.

Award Double Maple Gate
We wanted to keep the gate structure subtle in this challenging double tree gate. We forged and formed the “tree trunk” to split into fence posts and gate frame when open. To minimize weight, branches were forged hollow, with die-forged leaves. Stainless steel fittings at the base of the tree trunk posts make this gate and side wings removable to accommodate the occasional large machine.
Award Winner.

Gate Privacy by Design
The artful turn of thin edge against broad flat creates line and form, open space and flat barrier. View this gate from off-center, and the thin lines of open form close visually to a shuttered privacy.

Country Estate Fencing and Gate
Banded circles, powerfully tapered picket tops, and a lower panel of traditional wavy pickets complete the sense of a restrained historical work. The faux verde gris patination suggests an old bronze gate.

Country Walk Gate
This English Country Gate is a blend of sweet hand-worked forging and scrollwork to soften the gate lines. Hand-hammered horizontals help bring the gate to scale as a generous pedestrian entrance. A medallion at the gate center makes a single piece of this double gate
