For this primary suite renovation, we helped our client turn a cramped linen closet and unsightly built-in wardrobe into two shallow walk-in closets. The main direction from the client was to create a calming element within the bedroom. Right from the start, we wanted to consider what ‘calming’ meant more beyond just creating something aesthetically serene. One thing we noticed was that the room was full of hard surfaces and was very live acoustically. We designed a slatted wood wall with seamless, concealed pivot doors for entry to each closet. The wall was designed in a way where just behind the wood slats there is a black acoustical foam.
