Custom shelving helps create a modern look at an affordable price.

Spacesaver’s custom design and manufacturing capabilities create unique opportunities to collaborate with architects and designers. For instance, the architect for the library of this new public school in the Washington D.C. area wanted the library to have a modern, open feel while still staying within the school district’s budget.

Custom cantilever shelving integrates with plywood to create a bright, modern look in

this new public school library.

The architect chose plywood as the primary finish material. Designers are increasingly using plywood as a finish in modern interiors to take advantage of the product’s warmth, versatility, and affordability.

The architect worked directly with Spacesaver’s in-house engineering team on the library’s layout as well as the design of custom cantilever shelving. The shelving uprights were installed flush with the plywood walls to create a smooth surface and maintain the librarians’ ability to adjust shelving heights without special tools.

The end result is a versatile and visually appealing shelving system that integrates with the rest of the building’s bright, modern design.
