Two doors, side by side, one angled. Split jamb?

Kind of a unique set of doorways here that. Looking to put some doors in. Contractor wants to use split jamb doors, but I dont see how that would work. If you look at the photos, the doors are right next to each other, little space between them. I am afraid the trim from a split jamb wont fit. Is it worth trying to carve up the split jamb casing, or do a flat jamb and then custom trim it out?
One door is at an angle to the other too, any suggestions?

A split jamb is not the problem. The jamb will fit. It is the trim molding that must be modified to fit this goofy design. Sorry if you designed it, but it isn't normal. Let him install the jambs, but ask him what he plans to do with the trim.
