THE BOOKSHELF

This couple have a great love for music, justice and travels. As we were to transform their little 1960´s wooden house into a larger home, we introduced the concept of a building-scale bookshelf. We converted the existing one story house into a two story one, with a roof terrace on top, and added a three story stone box for safe storage. Inside, the 10m long wall is made up entirely of shelves – from ground to ceiling – to host their large collection of music and books.
