Weiland's lift-slide pocket doors allow seamless connections inside and out. "Operation is smooth even with oversized doors," Safdie says, and they "provide a solid weather seal when in the closed and lowered position without a bulky threshold." The firm used the doors on this Malibu, Calif., beach house. Weiland Sliding Doors & Windows, 760.722.8828; www.weilandslidingdoors.com.
