Displaying collections

The third floor of the Allens Lane house had an unusual landing with a four foot wide space that ran under the hall window. The client originally thought that it could function as a seating area for the children by scattering beanbags in the space. We decided that the wall of the stairway was a perfect place to display the client’s collection of globes and objects that she had collected from trips to Guatemala and other global expeditions. There was enough depth to build eight inch deep cubbies to display their collections. The objects are now in a unique and visually prominent place in the house reminding the family daily of their history and personality.
