Atkey and Company designs and produces period doors which are authentic reproductions of classical British architectural designs. The door panel configurations, proportions, mouldings and panel details in our period door collections are taken from original examples which are typical of the design aesthetics of the Georgian to Edwardian periods. A collaboration with the Sir John Soane Museum Collection offers Georgian and Regency door designs from the Soane archive. Elegant detailing from 300 years of historic interior design is brought into a modern architectural context in our new collection of Contemporary doors.
Each bespoke door is handmade to order, crafted using traditional methods and materials and tailored so the proportions, panel design, door moulding detail and finish meet your individual style and interior design vision. Our doors can be acoustic and fire rated and can be supplied in feature hardwoods or a primed finish, ready for hand painting on site.
Period Architectural Mouldings
Architraves and skirtings originally performed a purely functional role in concealing the junction between floor and wall, or between door lining and building aperture. Interest was soon added to these elements through the geometric variation of moulded sections, creating an interplay of light and shade.
Mouldings play a large part in defining the internal character of a property and change over time to reflect wider changes in architectural fashion. They are used to reinforce the status of certain areas over others within houses, and historically were used as visual cues that informed visitors which rooms they were expected to visit and which they were not.
The design of doors and mouldings can have a dramatic effect on how a room is perceived. Use the links below to view our doors, linings and mouldings, or call us on 01934 806883 to discuss your project.
