Stereo hiding under the eaves.

"A storage cabinet doesn't have to dominate a room," says San Francisco architect Dan Phipps. Here, architect and client felt that the stereo cabinet should remain unobtrusive so as not to detract from sandblasted rafters and a glass-block wall. Speakers are built into remote parts of the room, so cabinet doors can be closed even when the stereo is used.

Phipps designed the 28-inch-deep cabinets to fit at the base of a steeply pitched roof. Plywood doors with concealed self-closing hinges were painted to blend with the walls. A 1/2-inch gap between cabinet doors and the wall allows just enough room for a fingerhold.

Drawers roll out on full-extension, heavyduty glides.
