Boxes and boxes of Zack’s books found a new home in the custom library wall, fabricated with hot rolled steel, white oak, and aluminum. In the middle of the wall-to-wall bookshelves is a flat white oak panel where every board was custom-milled to perfectly fit the space. Franz and Paré-Mayer worked strategically to elevate simple materials. Design details such as the custom steel in the built-in bookshelves and aluminum handrail on the stairs were developed exclusively by Franz and Paré-Mayer for their clients, not to be repeated or reworked in any other projects.
