For most bibliophiles, a bookshelf-lined house as beautiful as the Kazuya Morita Architecture Studio's Shelf Pod house is a dream come true. The interior of the space consists of an endless grid of interlocking laminated pine-boards, which slot together to form latticed shelving units:
"All of the architectural elements in this space (stairs, windows, desks, chairs, etc) have been designed on the basis of the shelf scale, with the aim of achieving geometrical harmony which is comparable to Islamic Architecture. This innovative structural system affords not only large amount of book storage, but the possibility of flexible floor level which can be delivered from every height of bookshelf. Each space for different activity rise up helically, giving the impression of exploring a wooden jungle gym."
I always thought I'd love to live in a house packed with books, but lately the concept of shedding past reads presents the idea of perhaps a "lighter" life.
What do you think? Cozy dreamland or would you feel the overbearing weight of tons + tons + tons of knowledge?
