Describe, in detail, the project/item's construction.
All frameless construction using 3/4" thick panels. The entire cabinetry piece is constituted by 19 separate components that were assembled on site.
What is the most unusual aspect or outstanding characteristic of this entry?
The cabinetry was designed to appear as a single, cubical unit encompassing a number of functions with each side serving the space adjacent to it. On the mudroom side, there are coat closets and a pocket door to a powder room. On the kitchen side, there is a pull-out island book-ended by a broom closet and a stackable washer/dryer cabinet. On the living/dining room side, bookshelves surround a recessed space for an entertainment system. The cabinet pieces needed to be precisely coordinated with existing architecture, plumbing, gas and electrical.
