Default Remodelling lower door "stowage" when collapsed

We are in the process of remodelling our trailer, and have built in nice new cabinetry all around. I'm looking for an idea, though.

When collapsed, the lower half of the entry door "clicks" into a latch that is attached to the cabinet end (along the stove). That latch has a blocky, bulky chunk of wood that puts it into position to capture the lower half of the entry door. Effective, but ugly!

Has anyone created an alternative that would eliminate the big block of wood on the end of my beautiful new cabinet?

My lower door has a simple hook and loop latch to keep the door secured. The stove cabinet has no bloc tp lock the door in. Can you post a picture, I'd love to see how yours is setup.
The picture isn't great, but you can see the hook in place.
