Large Bookcase with Sliding Doors Underneath. These large-scale bookcases were created for part of the client’s new home extension. The space was long but not wide so the dimensions and the design were carefully chosen – the doors on the lower cabinets are sliding doors rather than hinged so that they don’t swing out into the room. The unusual shelf layout was the idea of the client, to break up what could otherwise have looked too regular. That crisp, geometric look is softened and balanced by the great board of waney-edged oak that runs from one end to the other.
