Hi Alan, Those shelves were custom design for that space and fabricated by local millworkers here in Brooklyn.

We installed a steel plate in the ceiling in order to provide support. You will definitely want to plan on installing some sort of blocking in the ceiling in addition to your existing joists/framing to support something like this!

Hi DesignMunkey, The cabinet was a concrete panel that was poured into formwork offsite and then installed once the cabinets were in.

Is it just a facing or is it structural? Any chance there are pix of the inside and how the parts work together?

Wood width - Someone mentioned the cut of wood being a center piece as not to "bow" in time. What are the width dimensions?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Open shelving was custom designed for this unique space. Each shelf is made out of 2-inch thick solid oak and suspended from steel supports mounted into a steel plate in the ceiling. "Don't be afraid of open shelving," says Zames. "You don't have to be the neatest person in the world. It's good motivation to keep an eye out for cool dishes and storage pieces that you would normally only bring out for a party."
On the other side of the kitchen is access to the rest of the house. The open shelves suspended from the ceiling add storage while allowing light and views through the space.
