Across the room, two galss doors stood open to a lavish balcony, where a light breeze played beneath a glistening cloud-swept moon. What is the function of ' a lavish balcony' here? Is it object? Is 'open' predicative or adverb?

    "A lavish balcony" is object of the preposition "to". "Open" is an adjective in predicative function': it ascribes the property of being "open" to "two glass doors". Compare, "Two glass doors were open ... ".
