More than a year ago I was contacted by readers of my blog who asked me if I could help them designing a bookcase and if our company would be interested in installing the cabinet in their home nearby Berlin, Germany.
I didn’t hesitate for one moment and started sketching after receiving some pictures of the existing situation of their living room.
The intention was to build a library cabinet on either side of the window.
As I noticed that the window was not centered on the wall, we suggested our client to replace the existing window by a new designed window and to have it centered in order to obtain a symmetrical cabinet arrangement. A profound change on the exterior of their home, but still attainable!
My first sketch of the new window and cabinet.
The cabinets are connected by a cornice extending the entire wall. The panelled sides of both cabinets and the created ceiling form a niche towards the window.
The beamed ceiling was painted in a shade of white and the walls were given a new color.The dining table, and a new chandelier found by a local antiques dealer, are now placed at the center of the room.
