Curved to fit
This is the space as it originally looked. The task was to utilize the as much available space under the stairs and come up with a way to incorporate all the elements of the entertainment centre: TV, media and video game players as well as all the media.
Two challenges are obvious right away, the fact that the staircase has two turns one of which is rounded. Initial thought was to incorporate a new LED TV inside the space but it was quickly abandoned due to the fact that it would compromise the staircase structure as well as take away too much storage room.
This custom built-in storage unit was done for a client who owns an old Victorian house in Toronto Annex. The house has very limited storage space and the client wanted to use the only available and unused area under the staricase for front hall storage.
