The Amazing Revolving UnWaste Bookcase Room Divider

I've seen revolving flat panel TV sets as wall dividers before, but this might be the first revolving 6 shelf unit. Nearly the whole wall can be switched around, bringing a whole library to the other side, the bedroom (and easily a small flat panel TV if mounted)...

The project is a collaboration between architect Ben Milbourne (Bild Architecture), eco-designer Leyla Acaroglu (Eco Innovators) and specialist furniture designer David Waterworth (Against the Grain):

A split-level open plan warehouse conversion in Melbourne's CBD needed a flexible solution to divide the open space into 2 rooms, while retaining the option of keeping the larger combined space when needed; an answer that would allow for light and airflow throughout the spaces but also a division between living and sleeping areas. The James Bond inspired solution involves a 4.6 metre high by 3.8m wide rotating library allowing books to be stored and accessed from either side and maximising air-flow and light when needed by simply pushing on the corner to allow for full 360 degree rotation.

Now what if you installed a reversible revolving TV inside one of those revolving shelf units?
