We love the court yard house which is in our new neighborhood. They have used shoji screens to provide privacy for their bathroom but since they are translucent they allow natural light to pass through to the hallway.

Here’s a modern interpretation of a Shoji screen being used as a large room divider / door. It’s pretty spectacular, I wonder what kind of hardware they used.

Scandinavian influences + a shoji inspired screen that separates a guest bedroom from a “contemplation room”. How very zen!
