Amazing bookcase/staircase.



I'm happy to find yet another multi-functional bookshelf. This one's a staircase that is also a bookshelf.

An amazing design by London-based Levitate Architects that's charming, a great use of space, and (of course) wonderful for anybody who loves to be thoroughly surrounded by books.
Here's what Levitate's Tim Sloan said about the project:
"We created a 'secret' staircase, hidden from the main reception room, to access a new loft bedroom lit by roof lights. Limited by space, we melded the idea of a staircase with our client's desire for a library to form a 'library staircase' in which English oak stair treads and shelves are both completely lined with books. With a skylight above lighting the staircase, it becomes the perfect place to stop and browse a tome."
