I’ve had dozens of architects ask me to specify hardware for doors with something “unusual” applied to them…sheetrock, wood, stone…one of our hardware consultants even had an architect propose full-sized brick covering the entire face of the door.  I always try to talk them out of it, but I have to admit it’s pretty cool when I see doors where the architect didn’t take “no” for an answer.

I saw these doors at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.  At first glance, you can’t tell that there are doors in this wall covered in a mosaic honoring the Women of Colorado History, but there are quite a few pairs and some singles.  If you’re in the area, you can check out the key to the images that appear on the wall, which is located just inside the lobby doors.  (It’s still a “no” on the brick though.)
