The clients of this project live in an area of Victoria that has many beautiful twisted Garry oaks growing on the rock bluffs around their house which has some big views from which the moon is often seen, snagged in the branches of the Oaks. The idea was to replace two doors on the upper floor where the eaves of the roof drop to an angle on the opening side of the doors and use that angle to suggest the line of a branch and then have the moon caught in it. Having the glass in the doors was also going to help with the creating some light into the space.
The doors where made from Fir for strength and lightness. The oak silhouette was cut from Fir that was laminated with a thin strip of plywood to give it stability and the same was also done for the circle that holds the stained glass. The branch design is replicated on both sides of the doors.
