Staircase Bookshelf Does Double Duty

A London-based couple wanted easy ways to maximise the use of space in their small flat, and a built-in staircase-shaped bookcase does the job. This isn’t a DIY project—an architect built it in, and it’s a pretty steep climb, but the owner says she got used to it quickly. While this is more a gawk and drool wishlist scenario for most people’s actual homes, you can always build yourself an attractive floating bookshelf on the cheap.
