The Bookshelf House was created for a family of five who wanted a dramatic room-length bookshelf. To make the most of the small 160-square-meter interior, Mosca added large multifunctional bookshelves beautiful enough to serve as focal points. The bookcases were constructed from light beech wood and are slightly staggered for visual interest. The largest bookshelf is stepped and doubles as a stair bannister to the mezzanine , while other bookshelves are used as room dividers or morph into storage cabinets. “In this project we tried to create a main thread which draws the principles of internal space of this villa to modulate it,” writes the architect. “This was the key element which now guides the circulations and movements between the various volumes. This carpentered set which acts as a mark in the house allows us to remodel the high volume of the living room, it leads a fluid movement which develops along both levels.so a big bookcase takes shape in the main room to become a functional lifeline which sublimates the existing staircase and finally splits up in isolated elements which bound the office allowing an open intimacy.” Related: Slovenia built a habitable structure with latticed wooden bookshelves White walls, ample glazing , and high ceilings fills the interior with natural light and make the rooms feel airy and spacious. The books on the shelves and the carefully selected furnishings—the chairs with the yellow cushions and the vibrant dressers in the bedrooms—add bright pops of color to the minimally decorated interior. + Andrea Mosca Via Dezeen Images via Andrea Mosca
