Shelf Pod: House of Storage in Japan

Dezeen

This 52 square meter (560 square feet) private home in Japan was designed to artfully store the client's massive collection of books. With pine shelves covering every wall surface, the open-plan home is a bibliophile's dream!

Like a giant grid, the whole plan of the house (including furnishings) was based on the scale of the shelving.
Kazuya Morita Architecture Studio designed a dome-like wooden roof and a clay exterior to help keep the book collection at the proper humidity level.
