Upstairs privacy with sideways door.

Suspending a hollow-core door sideways on an overhead sliding door track gives a way of closing off a second-story bedroom from the living room below. Owner-architect Skip Haugh, a partner in Salerno-Livingston & Partners, designed the door to provide aural and visual privacy.

The 52- by 80-inch door, available through lumberyards, stores to the side of the 48- by 72-inch opening. The wall-mounted aluminum track runs almost the full width of the bedroom. Two chromeplated drawer pulls mounted near the bottom of the door match the polished metal of the track.
