The Bestseller was a unique project for us - a comforting and restorative process. The old Bible Shop on Dawson Street with fabulous structural internal detail, such as elaborate cornicing and woodwork which we just had to retain. Many of the bookshelves and joinery were original pieces and provide a backbone to this project. The design had to provide a gallery for the many pieces or art and artefacts that came with the old shop - these pieces made the brief so interesting. A quirky, eclectic mix of period charm - step into the secret world of The Bestseller.
This charming design follows none of the rules. The library element evolved - it was an emotional project with no practicality for a change.
