Lutyens & Rubinstein Bookshop, Notting Hill, London by de Rosee & Sa
[VIDEO] De Rosee & Sa was commissioned by literary agency Lutyens & Rubinstein to create an independent bookshop and office
The shop is arranged over two levels; a sliding bookshelf conceals a private office and meeting room in the basement, and allows the space to be revealed as a venue for screenings or book signings.
The bookshop has a flexible design, with joinery cubes on castors for the rearrangement of the counter, and shelving modules that transform from seating alcoves into book displays. The shelving, constructed off-site by specialist joiner Bookworks, conforms to two datum levels. A low-level shelf doubles up as seating or display space and a high-level steel rail supports modular globe lighting and hanging signs.
