JACKSON SHELF

November 2012

 

Using furniture to define an area is a great way to create borders between spaces without building walls. This 577 square-foot bachelor apartment in Edmonton’s downtown needed more privacy in the bedroom without cramping the living space. This custom bookshelf allowed for functional storage space to be accessed from both spaces while allowing flow between the areas, and prompting owner Sarah Jackson to love her home even more.

Sarah bought a place in the historic McLeod Building a few years ago and immediately started to make it her own. The tiny loft in the heart of the city is her pride and joy. It reflects her design sensibilities. We were honoured that she felt we could match her design savvy. Sarah even mentioned us in an interview with the Edmonton Journal: “There was no separate bedroom, so Jackson had a friend (a designer and carpenter) create a floor-to-ceiling room divider with seven tiers broken into cubby holes. It doubles as shelf space, and hives off the sleeping space from the living space.” We’re the friend/designer/carpenter. Thanks for the shout out, Sarah.
