In the space of 110 m2 apartment that must show how to display more than 2,000 books is a great challenge for architects to undertake design work. Despite the challenge, the huge volume of books also inspired the architect. The idea of turning the walls of the apartment into a bookshelf was born.
All rooms are connected to the bedroom, bathrooms are integrated into this unique wall system.
The apartment is divided into two distinct main spaces, apparently thanks to the book wall. Common living space of the house includes living room, kitchen and dining room, the rest of the bedroom of parents, children in private space.
Living rooms, kitchens and dining tables are arranged in harmony with the courteous colors accompanied by color objects suitable for two small members.
