A combined bookshelf-staircase adds interest and utilizes an otherwise wasted space to create a functional centerpiece that adds warmth and fluidity.
“London-based Zminkowska De Boise Architects made alterations to the ground floor of a two-storey Edwardian terrace, occupied by a couple and their young children. Books can be stored beneath the wide steps of this staircase, designed by Zminkowska De Boise Architects to connect the two halves of a split-level living room inside a renovated London flat. The architects created a series of large new openings through the existing interior walls, merging the ground-floor living spaces to create an open-plan dining room and kitchen.
They then added a set of wide white steps with built-in book storage, connecting the main living space at the front of the house, with a “snug” that sits at a slightly lower level towards the back. The steps can used by the residents as an informal seating area, while nooks on either side of the stairs form more structured spaces for reading or studying.”
