Houzz.com is an extraordinary resource for designers and architects. As we were perusing the site, we came across two stunning Rakks installations in a Queen Village Row Home outside of Philadelphia. The home, remodeled by Rasmussen/Su Architects has a lively, modern feel making it a perfect fit for Rakks shelving.
The owners of this row home chose Ramussen/Su Architects to create a warm and open interior that complemented their collection of Mid-Century Modern furniture and the structure’s existing 19th-century detailing. The architects employed a combination of custom cabinetry and Rakks to maximize storage and increase floorspace throughout the home, which was paramount given its extreme narrowness of 14 feet.
Kevin Rasmussen, of Rasmussen/Su says, “Rakks shelving provides a great contrast against the original details. Its minimalist look complements the new millwork. As modern as Rakks is, it is very adaptable.”
Rakks Wall Mounted Standards and Rakks Shelf Support Brackets are made of extruded aluminum and have an attractive anodized finish. The substantial book collection shows that the form is not without function – Rakks handles the weight with style. Rakks Wall Mounted Standards were custom cut to maximize the open desk space and provide an overall feeling of openness while defining the office loft.
