The closet is birch ply and mahogany. The doors are soft and hard maple, and cherry, with fabric.
I have found through many closet organization trials that the best way for me to acces clothes is to have them in folded piles that I can see and grab without much fuss. Clothing stores often organize this way, and I can see why. It's easy. Obviously some things need to go in a drawer, so I built drawers into the design, eliminating the need for a dresser in the room.
The idea for these doors started with asian room dividers, and canvas stretchers for paintings. The oriental fabric does the job of screening the closet from view, and it is streched tight over a frame of soft maple. The mirrors are mounted to this frame. The fabric can be replaced fairly easily to accomodate the decor of the room.
I wanted the doors to give the user access to the entire closet. Bifold doors open up in the closet, limiting the open space of the closet by the thickness of the doors, and with four doors that's about six inches. These doors are mounted with 35mm cup hinges, like on cabinet doors. I've used enough of them to accomodate the larger doors, but this wasn't much of a problem, because the doors don't weigh very much because of the fabric panel.
