Emery Shelves and Screens
The Emery Shelves were designed to meet the client’s needs for additional storage. They fill the gable wall from floor to ceiling either side of the French doors. The ‘Golden Section’ was used to proportion the shelf spacing. Sliding door gear was built into the back of the shelves to support sliding screens that hang behind the shelves during the day and slide into the centre to close of the French doors at night. The sliding screens have fabric panels giving them a Japanese character. A traditional library style ladder was incorporated into the shelving to give easy access to the upper levels.
