I think I'd move that top hinge down some so you can get it closer to the outside skin. It may not be ideal as far as distance between the two hinges is concerned but should function better I'd think. Also if you make the "L" part inside the pillar longer it should give you a bigger swing out. For example Hagan sells two different hinges for different width doors. You have a lot of width to play with and I'd try to capitalize on that.
