Alcove wardrobes, but narrower than usual so as to not dominate and box in the chimney & fireplace
Drinks cabinet that ties in with the open end of a short set of steps, but also hides awkward brick footings that project out into the room.
I decided to make it with heavily rounded corners as it is a through traffic area and added an oak top was it will be used as a kind of ‘bannister rail’ when going up or down the steps.
Inside the unit is fitted with adjustable shelving. The lower section is stepped forwards to disguise the brick footings behind, and a false back allows access to hidden wiring sockets etc.
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.
