The library, in the design stage.Office Nomads is a coworking space on Seattle’s Capitol Hill.  In the interest of full disclosure, I use it as my workspace.  The owners wanted to create a library in one of their conference rooms.  The final design sought to be simple, modern and use as much material from onsite as possible.

  • Unit split into four sections, mirroring rhythm of glass on opposite wall.
  • Library material sourced from old shelves in attic.  ACX plywood was selected and sorted to give best patterns premium exposure.
  • Face frame was installed flush to plywood boxes to give a modern look.  Individual shelves are unfaced, exposing a clean finished plywood edge.
  • Countertop is made of 2×6 fir subflooring.  It was planed to remove the old finish and reveal beautiful, knot-free vertical grain.
