Oblique Walls Create a Cool Double Height Bookshelf in this Japanese Home
We are all creatures of habit. The world of architecture and design is no different with straight lines, simple cubic volumes and blank ceilings often becoming the norm. But this contemporary home in Japan offers a new idea for the bibliophiles out there. A giant bookshelf that spans an entire, double-height wall is nothing new in itself. But when the wall slopes gently, then the large, oblique bookshelf is undoubtedly bound to become the showstopper of your home. This smart bookshelf design originates from functionality rather than form, making the lives of those inside the Bookshelf House designed by Shinsuke Fujii Architects a whole lot easier.
