Swoon Over This Bookshelf That Lets You Climb For Your Favorite Reads


Shinsuke Fujii Architects is the firm behind the “bookshelf house” in Shinyoshida, Yokohama, Japan. We first learned about this beauty on Lost at E Minor. The sloped wall spans both levels of the home (tall ceilings, you are the best) and acts as a climbable bookshelf—easy access for the most discerning bibliophile. The minimal design is practical, playful, and pretty genius. It’s also earthquake-proof and protects the home from heavy rainfall, sheltering its entrance. With a wall of books like this, we’d never leave the house. BRB, moving in!
