The Book Tower House

When a client was looking to add an extension to their tall, narrow London home to house their library and a study space, Platform 5 architects came up with the idea to built the extension around a “book tower”—a dramatic staircase incorporated staggered shelves culminating a top floor office space and library.

This is a pretty great combination of height, secluded space, and open shelves.
