flush (hidden) doors

Could use some help. Trying to build two flush doors (6'x 32") and (3'x 32") covering wall closet openings. We want to make the doors look like they are part of the wall (no outside trim). Our gc doesn't have any plans for this; any help?

Maybe, a suggestion or two. Asking for a design for a underway project is crusty (in my book).

Flush surface, flush door: Rixson pivot hinges. More problematic: Bevel Edges, Bevel hinges, recessed into the style and jamb, calced' for a 90 degree opening swing.

Flush surface, face frame, lipped panel, applicable hinge styles: continuous stainless steel or aluminum swing clear, flush mortice swing clear. Requires a custom jamb, recessing, and
calcing the opening swing. Lipped panels are problematic & prone to warping.

Down & dirty: bevel edged, bevel jamb, continuous hinge. Recess hinge, bevel face ply ~ hinge side, & jamb to accommodate swing.
