Door solution for open bathroom with 3 sided fireplace
We have an open master bathroom with a 3 sided fireplace where a doorway would logically be. We are looking for a door solution that will:
1)Shut out light and sound from the bathroom, including the see through portion of the fireplace
2)Allow easy exit/entry to/from the bathroom
3)Allow use of the fireplace
4)Not require us to rip out the existing vanity and sinks

Did you find a way to accomplish this? We have the same need with a house we are looking to buy and would like to confirm this type of project is feasible.

No expert on this, but I suspect you'd need to replace the fireplace with one with only the front side open. I doubt you could put anything on the bathroom side of the fireplace to close it off or to allow you to put a door on the bathroom. I'd talk with a fireplace dealer that carries your fireplace brand first.
Interesting design I assume the toilet at a minimum is in a separate room.
