Something more interesting than simply having the space ‘doored off’.
I decided to revisit the ‘stacked box’ idea i’d used previously. More dynamic and less heavy feeling but still just as much storage. It was important to not have the upper box units too close to the slope of the ceiling as that would have made it feel too built in and static.
remove existing units and replace with taller deeper units that tuck round onto the brick front of the chimney.
“to look plain but original”. Super wide alcoves and walls made of bungaroosh so I made box units to avoid drilling battens into the difficult walls. This also gave a neater construction look to the units.
Storage and double wardrobe either side of a doorway to an en-suite bathroom. double doors into bathroom to look like normal wardrobe doors except opening inwards.
Upper doors over the doorway entrance are false doors
