not as good as sou fujimoto’s or shigeru ban’s bookshelf-houses
This would make me anxious being around all the niches, lines and potential books/stuff. Interesting for sure but not for a home Id want to live in. … Certainly well done from a construction stand point. My favorite element is the outside of the house.
Im impressed with the readers pointing out the arabic calligraphy, never would have guessed that one. :)
Must be a nightmare to clean!! lol
carpet on the floor has Iranian design and pattern and colors.
the colors and pattern of drawing is Iranian too.
i am from iran
Perfect geeky residence..
But there aren’t very many books…
the room with shoes so reminds me of the bit from the new italian job film.
I agree with Aggi : it is too much systematic. It’s OK for one room, but not for all the house… The person who lives in needs to fill her life…
great for a book or an art lover
That’s a LOT of shelf space!
Um.. Yo.. they have, with books. I can think of worse things to fill one’s life with frankly.
It’s not arabic calligraphy, that’s Persian.

That Arabic Calligraphy doesn’t mean anything.
what’s the matter?

So.. where’s the TV?
I agree with Mark. My first thought was “hey, where’s the books?”.
I’d have all those shelves full and still have boxes of books in the attic. :-)
