Look! A Window in a Bookshelf

...or, of course, a window surrounded by custom bookcases, but we prefer to see it the other way. This design really evokes a moment in time for us — when we've just finished a book and are looking for a new one, and casually glance (in our case, to the side) out of the window. But the house this shelf/window is part of is even more unique...

It's all one house, designed to look like many, a whole compound, even. Whoa? The designer is Hugh Newell Jacobson, and the rest of the interior is also beautiful, light and open.
