“MOBILE CABINET SHOWROOM”
The national cabinet brand, Semihandmade, wanted to put their new product line in the hands of designers, contractors, and DIY home renovators. Our solution?
Create a mobile showroom to park at design expos and events. On the chassis of an 18’ stevan truck, we built the showroom from the ground up to be a beautiful jewel case that showcases the brand’s newest line of cabinets. The challenge for us was to create a truck that “read” home kitchen while still meeting all the needs of a public, commercial space.
Windows were an important tool to achieving this goal. Large architectural windows on one wall create an aerie feel while a smaller window is centered over the sink and framed by upper cabinets. Laminate flooring is both durable and lends a residential vibe. Bright white walls and ceiling reflect light and are a blank canvas for the cabinets to shine.
EVERY NEW BUILD INCLUDES FIREFLY'S
Semihandmade made a name for themselves creating quality cabinet doors that hang on Ikea’s standard cabinet bases. This revolutionized the home renovation world by making a custom kitchen available to everyone at an affordable price point.
With a product line intended for everyone and core values that include mutual respect, accessibility was at the forefront of the showroom’s design. To make the showroom universally accessible we installed a BraunAbility wheelchair lift and expanded the aisle to 36”. And, taking a page from Ikea, we planned for two doors – one to enter and one to exit – to keep any line moving.
