Low attic wardrobes

Client brief:

Hanging space required in the sloping area below a velux window in new loft conversion.

Centre section to have an Ikea set of drawers

Side units to have hanging rails and to retain access to loft hatches

Airing Cupboard

Client brief:

Storage to be built into an awkward sloping space with roof beams and a radiator in the ‘wrong ‘ place.

I decided to put a frame around the radiator so the transition from outside to inside the cupboard looked intentional. Then i came up with the idea to use the radiator to heat inside the cupboard via openings and slots within the unit, effectively making it a drying or airing cupboard, with slatted centre shelves.

The radiator, which went all the way to the back of the unit , boxed in to visually connect it to the rest of the unit.

Client brief:

Floor to ceiling storage using bought Ikea wardrobe carcasses and an old Ikea shelving unit cut down

Old shelving unit cut down and framed with pine (to be painted)
