Pantry tucked into a hallway bend
I did this as part of a whole-house job, and now someone wants pretty much the same thing. Am doing some doodling now to see how it might go together this time, with a new feature. Not my design, but detailed by an architect.
It was interesting to place a render view camera in the 3D model to get the same view as a photo I had.
All frameless, cherry doors and trim, the ceiling lattice thing is at about 7'2 AFF, with the ceiling above at 9'1. Lattice segments lift right out to provide access for replacing lamps in the recessed can lights above.
Carcases all 3/4" MCP, edgetape cherry veneer, a lot of solid cherry trim. Softclose hinge clip-ons for each door, some tiny LED light strips by Kick Lighting under that wallcab run at the end to light the dim corner.
The little shelf and drawer affair with its cab above and kneespace below does not make sense to me now. The architect was envisioning a phone shelf and mini-desk, which is not how the owners use the space. What I want to do now is change it to a shorter top cab, a blank recess with shelf for a small flatscreen TV, and below that, some sort of shelving with all the electrical for a set of charging stations for all the phones and tablets we seem to have nowadays. Then shelving for cookbooks, probably down to toekick height. Just ideas for now. Need to sketch and model.
When you turn right at the end of this box canyon hall, you enter the laundry room.
