London-based studio Platform 5 Architects redesigned a home so that it could house an extensive collection of books. Called ‘Book Tower House’, the home was given a wooden staircase at the heart of the house, with walls that double as bookcases.
The back, however, is a different story. The shape of the roof eave is designed to allow winter sun into the house while cutting out the hot summer sun. Photo by: James KnowlerCourtesy of: James Knowler Photography
