Build a large built-in bookcase


This bookcase is made of wood panels screwed into a metallic structure

which has been assembled with the Kinook system.

This construction technique has greatly simplified the construction and allowed customized design such as the small niche, in the middle, or the adjustable shelves. Very solid, this bookcase can easily support the weight of all the books.

CUSTOMISED DESIGN
Project starts by tracing the construction outline onto the wall. It will provide a guide for fixing the metallic studs on the wall and also provides a realistic view of the construction dimensions and proportions. Adjustments of the design can still be made at this stage.

Assemble the metallic structure using the Kinook blocks and metallic C-studs. Start from the bottom an nstall the panels as you go along to solidify the structure.

Once the structure is finished, band the edges. Here we have used wood plinths.

The small niche has been created with plasterboard panels.
Notice also the small depth difference between the central part of the bookcase and the sides, it allows different shelf sizes and provides an elegant and personalised look for this bookcase.

The first row of shelves is raised about 10cm from the floor to allow the room wall plinth to continue against the bookcase.
