The Carriage House on the lakeshore property of Sid Morris, Cornelius, NC is very likely the most unique in America! It doesn't house horses and horse buggies. It doesn't house antique autos. Instead it houses his R44 helicopter, and that chopper gets to the Carriage House by first landing on a helipad on the end of his 200' dock. A small electrically driven dolly then gently lifts the chopper with operator and guides the chopper to its proper stall inside this remarkable 4-star carriage house.

Red Bull Headquarters, CA
HLW International of Santa Monica, CA, was charged with turning a 1950s-era brick building into the new home of Red Bull Energy Drink. As part of that process, the firm ordered the demolition of a section of the building's original roof to create an interior courtyard, and then constructed within the courtyard a 40'-wide by 250'-long, non-functioning skateboard ramp, which has offices and conference spaces beneath.
With the ramp being the focal point of the 105,000 sq. ft. building, the architect looked for a way to create a seemingly seamless connection between the interior of the building and the courtyard space. That was accomplished with a designer glass bifold door.
Schweiss Bifold Doors of Fairfax, MN, manufactured the door, which weighs approximately 10 tons. To operate the door, two electric motors and eight lift straps are used.
Schmidt Construction of Williams, CA, handled the delivery and installation of the door. Inner Space Constructors of Rancho Dominguez, CA, was the project's general contractor and was responsible for demolition and renovation.

House of Air, CA
House of Air is an indoor trampoline park located in a historic airplane hangar at West Crissy Field in the Presidio of San Francisco, California, not far from the Golden Gate Bridge. What used to house high-flying aircraft, now houses hundreds of energetic youth-minded people, some of whom can now exercise a different style of high flight.
With all the activity going on in this building, it’s nice to be able to open the doors for some fresh or cool air. A 41’ 6” x 19’ 3” custom made Schweiss bifold liftstrap glass designer door is installed at the entrance to the large hangar building. Not only does the glass door open for ventilation purposes, but it gives those inside and out a beautiful view when open or shut. It’s also quite convenient for moving equipment in and out of the building. The door is equipped with electric photo eye sensors and a door base safety edge.

Doc B's Kitchen, Chicago, IL
Doc B's Fresh Kitchen in Chicago was established to become an extension of your own kitchen. The Gold Coast location features a 16.2 ft. wide x 7.975 ft. tall Schweiss hydraulic glass designer door equipped with electric photo eye sensors. The door opens to an outside dining area which seats 20 customers.
"What's unique about the door is when it's open it creates this natural canopy. You can sit right up next to the window. So if its rainy or misting outside you get the benefit of the outside visual and still have the advantage of that outdoor/indoor feel," explained the owner. "I think we looked at every conceivable door type available. We looked at bifold, horizontal and vertical, scissor type systems, and overhead glass garage doors as well. We mostly wanted a strong connection to the outside street energy of Doc B's."

Some of the nicest houses you'll ever see are located along the coastline of California. One such construction was completed on a Beverly Avenue home in Santa Monica. This door covers two stories of the home and opens up for a view of the ocean between closely located trees in its backyard.
The Schweiss top-drive bifold designer doors have Organ glass on them that are double-glazed with gas between to make them more energy efficient.
" The whole process of getting the door in place was 'Egyptian style.' — We opened the main entry to the house, took the header down and cut the walls to weave the bifold door through the house in two pieces. It took a bunch of heavy-duty dollies and about 26 guys to wheel it through the house so the crane could pick up the door by the frame on the other side of the house. The homeowner loves the door," said Nir Alon, managing partner of Los Angeles Construction & Development. "
