The Secret Room

The secret room bookcase

This bookcase was designed to separate a busy family kitchen from the adjacent tv room and bar area.
As part of the manufacturing process we had to build a mock up of the wall onto which the cabinet was to be fitted. We then built the whole cabinet around this wall in our workshops before taking it all apart for painting
It was a fun but testing project for the workshop and site teams and it fitted perfectly together on site. The dummy books we used on the bar side were amazing quality castings from original hardback classics.
The paperbacks on the kitchen side were real books that were specially reduced in depth to give the appearance of being full depth.
Once fitted all of the cabinetry was hand painted to match the d├ęcor of the adjacent rooms.
