Partition wall serves as headboard, storage space, and screen Essay

Centered between two side walls of this remodeled master bedroom is a
room-dividing partition. On one side it serves as a headboard with a
12-inch-deep display shelf. On the other side of the 16-inch-deep by
109-inch-wide unit are low storage compartments for linens.



Framed with 2-by-4s and covered with gypsum board, the unit creates
a hallway to separate the bedroom from a bath. But only its ends reach
the ceiling: the center portion drops 16 inches below the ceiling to let
the hall and bedroom share light.

To keep the bedroom side uncluttered, owners Evelyne and David
Lennette of Alameda, California, had a queen-size platform bed frame
built. Six 13-1/2-inch-high drawers pull out from underneath the
mattress. The bed butts against the headboard so pillow tops are level
with the 36-inch-high shelf. (For easy cleaning, the front face and the
shelf are covered with plastic laminate.)



Architect Hiro Morimoto of Emeryville, California, designed the
remodel.
