Novel Refuge: 3rd Place

A bright and sunny library encourages quiet time

Architect Charles Moore, interior designer Lauren Liess and kitchen designer Hannah Rasa designed a library to complement the Arts and Crafts style of the client’s home. It features custom millwork by CWP Cabinets blending open bookcases and closed components to store the owner’s treasures. The design team chose Shaker-style cabinet doors with quarter-round molding for extra detail. The wall of built-in storage lets the homeowners display—and organize—a range of books, decorative items and family photos. The cabinets are aligned with windows above, which provide views of the garden and plenty of natural light.

Cabinet Provider: Hannah Rasa, LEED AP, NCIDQ, HPR Designs, Rockville, Maryland. Architecture: Moore Architects, PC, Falls Church, Virginia. Interior Design: Lauren Liess, Lauren Liess & Co., Great Falls, Virginia. Builder: Ironstar Building Company, Arlington, Virginia.
