When a friends son went off to college, the ugly glass computor desk went along with him. I was asked to design a built in cabinet to hide the CPU, printer, monitor, etc.
Now the fun part, this had to fit into a small dining room with a bit of Arts and Crafts design elements. and the usual window and doors cutting into available space. When closed up, it needed to look like it belonged in the room.
The best space was a corner flanked on one side by a window, and a doorway on the other. So as to intrude the least, I used 45 degree corners on both ends and brought the unit up tight to the window and the doorway. Hieght was chosen to be in line with traditonal A/C hieghts. The doors for the unit where made using shutter hinges so that when open they would fold up and take up less space. For a little fun, I used a old top from a oak dresser, cut down, as the keyboard tray.
Everyone has been pleased with the results, and a lot of usefull space has been added without intruding too much into the sopace
