Library: After

A Nook to Nourish a Love of Reading

The resulting 8-by-10-foot library nook, with custom shelving hand-fashioned by Tom Silva and TOH master carpenter Norm Abram, is now home to much of the family's impressive book collection and serves as an appropriate entry to Gillian's new office to the left. Kids' games and other items are stashed in cabinets below the shelves, and a window seat gives son Liam a quiet spot for playing chess, one of his favorite hobbies. "We're thrilled with how this space turned out—it exceeded our expectations," says Bill.
