This bespoke storage wall bridges a homes history with its present.
Turn-of-the-century homes aren’t exactly known for their plentiful storage, so when the new homeowners moved into this Point Grey two-and-a-half-storey character house with an extensive book collection in tow, they knew some updates were in order.
RUFproject’s Sean Barrington Pearson came to the rescue with his renovation, installing an entire wall of shelving around an oversized window. It’s a feature that acts as a gradient between the historic entryway and the modern kitchen, blending elements of both styles: the crisp storage grid mixes mod white laminate with warm oak, and offers ample room for stowing both reading material and favourite toys.
“The bookshelf is furniture, storage and a connective element linking the dining space with the kitchen,” says Pearson. “We love making everything we do work as hard as possible.”
