This was a three phase project to build a library for a small school. Its essentially all birch ply with cherry face-frames and millwork. There are two 22’ walls of 8’ bookcases (which include the desk). A wall of reading “nooks” which have pull-out display cabinets for magazine storage and drawers under the nooks. ANd then a wall of study carrols with a storage cabinet (they use the space for after-school care as well – so they needed to store games, snack etc…) Also, in front of the reading nooks is a two-tiered curved platform. They will strew multiple pillows all about the platform for the kids to lounge and read or listen to the teacher read…. It was a fun but complicated project. All the components were made AND finished off-site (lacquer) and then assemble onsite (in some cases cut onsite…). All critique and/or questions welcomed!
