Using Twinmotion allowed me to illustrate how light would enter the room at different times of day. I also added in lighting which would be used in the absence of daylight. This creates another dimension to the grid layout of the room. Light will glow through gaps to illuminate the grid pattern on the floor and walls in the room.
As the walls are 4 meters high, the tops drawers cannot be reached without aid. I didn't want to add stairs or anything else that would have to remain exposed. Instead the bottom row of drawers in the wall will be solid, serving as a pull out stair making it easy for my client to reach the drawers above

Stores often have very creative storage systems, shown about is a Prada store with shelves moulded in specific shapes, for specific items.
Another precedent which seemed to answer my brief very well, is the idea of concealing, rather than revealing items, as shown in the images above of the Paper store, by Tonerico Architects. They have used drawers which recede into the walls to hold the paper, this creates a very interesting minimalistic grid aesthetic.
