RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
As Malaysia is tropical country, jalousie window are likely to be seen in most of traditional houses to get the space ventilated. The idea of designing JPDoor is mainly to show a different way of applying the concept in bigger scale and different direction. Also, it helps end user to see through another of the door by flipping one of the solid panel and the rest will just follow its direction as it's all connected.

CHALLENGE:
It was designed for the purpose of having the space ventilated without swinging the pivot door aside, which might cause areas to be block by its size. Thus, emerging the idea of jalousie system provides not only a solution, but also creates interaction with users. Having the right fittings is crucial to support the door weight and yet to keep its initial purpose of designing.
