Project: Project Little John: Basement Fireplace

Date: Summer 2016

Work: Fireplace surround and cabinetry

Notes: The theme of white painted shaker doors and white oak trim was continued from the kitchen into the basement living room. The client allowed us to push the cabinetry design by making it asymmetrical and minimal. The cabinets seem to cascade down the wall with the fireplace proportionally centred. The fireplace surround is done in leathered granite which gives the space more wabi-sabi, and all the hardware is minimal in detail. These cabinets provide drawers in the bottom, shelving above and electronics in the bottom right.
