Design: Climbing the Walls To Get To Your Books

As a New Yorker I appreciate any solution to a small dwelling space, especially one that takes into account rampant bibliophilia. Take a look at this shelving cum staircase from a London flat that is lit via skylight and leads to a top floor bedroom.

Levitate Architect's Tim Sloan describes the design as an "...upside down 'sedan chair' structure (with Rodrigues Associates, Structural Engineers, London) that carries the whole weight of the stair and books back to the main structural walls of the building. It dangles from the upper floor thereby avoiding any complicated neighbour issues with the floors below."
