Shōji doors are often designed to slide open, and thus conserve space that would be required by a swinging doorcitation needed
They are used in traditional houses as well as Western-style housing, especially in the washitsu Japanese-style room In modern construction, the shōji does not form the exterior surface of the building; it sits inside a sliding glass door or windowcitation needed
