Space Age Reading Tubes & Room Dividers

We love how books serve as portals to other worlds, so what better place to create an alluring reading nook for kids than an actual portal between two rooms.

These cozy, futuristic ducts are the residential work of London architecture firm, Michaelis Boyd Associates. I'm not only keen on the sheltered look of these reading nooks, but also love the way the playful design breaks up the tension between a shared space. My only concern is whether or not I could cram myself into one.
