This is a house full of custom built in cabinetry, including two curved offices, a library room, a large kitchen, coffee bar, his & her curved vanities and a media centre.
- The two offices are in the upstairs and downstairs of the tower. The upstairs office in solid alder, stained dark. The desk top is covered in a leather like fabric. There is a built in bar sink in an alcove and a concealed door leading to a bedroom.
- The small library is adjacent to the upstairs office and it’s woodwork matches the office and it has a curved corner seat.
- The downstairs office is similar to the upstairs one, except that it is finished natural and there is a children’s desk attached.
- The kitchen is done in Eastern cherry and consists of a curved bar, with a curved arch above.
- It has an island with two sinks and food heating drawers. Its corners are columns.
- The stove counter has a large gas stove and large hood supported by columns and topped off with a large crown mold.
- Adjacent to the kitchen is a coffee bar. All of the counter tops are granite.
Upstairs are his & hers curved vanities that follow the lines of the curved valances. They are suspended off the floor. To create the curves a form has to be built in the shape and then three layers of 1/4 inch rubber ply need to be glued and clamped to the form. Once set and the curves are faired in, the molded cabinet is veneered. After the veneer has set, the door and drawer fronts are cut out, with no room for error. The vanities are done in Eastern cherry solid and veneer.
The media room has a false wall built about two feet from the actual framed wall. Onto the false wall is mounted the cabinets, that are about 18 inches deep. The centre is taken up by a large flat screen TV and a remote controlled movie projector screen. The doors are paneled in speaker cloth, allowing for sound transmission in the upper speaker doors and for remote control transmission to the electronics behind the left hand door. The right hand door is actually a passage way leading to the 2 foot deep space behind the cabinets, allowing servicing to the various electronic plug-ins.
