plan, unfolded sections, and overriding geometries

A wooden closet was designed for a small rectangular space within a historic apartment unit. The existing plaster walls were furred out and lined with full height panels and the original detailing of the door and trim was rebuilt to create a distinctly lined interior. Alignments and proportions of the new elements were carefully developed alongside precise detailing and a straightforward expression. The closet is constructed entirety in riftsawn white oak and gives the space a special room-like quality.
