the design forms a cocoon, surrounding occupants with a latticed wall-mounted bookshelf. in addition to storing various publications, the timber unit has been configured to simulate the inside of a dome. the stands incorporate a graduated finish that attributes depth, while the illuminated half circle found in the back wall forms the vanishing point of the structure, creating a balance between color and perspective.
