Customizing a Niche to Conceal an A/C Unit
This unique office bookcase was driven by the need to hide a new A/C air handler that was installed in this whole house renovation. The beautiful home was a remodel of an older home and a new efficient cooling system was needed. The only problem was where to put it. A front room, turned office space, was the best solution, but no closet was built for it at time of construction.
Having completed all the trimwork on the customer’s previous home, Woodworx was called in to design and build a niche bookcase and A/C closet. The large upper doors on the left house the massive air handler sitting on a platform. The panels below are purely decorative, as the air intake part of the system is located elsewhere. The bookcase itself features two filing cabinet drawers, and a pull-out computer printer shelf hidden behind a door. Low voltage LED lights illuminate the bookcase and are completely dimmable.
