In this case, the designers opted for a hybrid library-storage option, the cabintery and shelving wrapping around a perfectly articulated set of risers, offset by an elegantly spare handrail. It’s particularly skilful: there is light and air, and the colours from the books add vibrancy to an otherwise all-white scheme.

Space-savvy storageA double-height library wall, with a dedicated stairway to ensure books are easily accessible – this is a book collector’s idea of bliss.

7. Double-height library wall in ItalyLocation: Torino, ItalyWho lives here: A freelancer working from homeDesigner: MARC architects In this small flat (100 square metre), there wasn’t enough space in which to work and live. The architects decided to take advantage of the area under the roof and demolished most of the ceiling that separated the apartment from the attic, creating a double-height space. The client asked for a big bookcase, so the whole wall was filled with shelves. To make every book accessible, the architects designed a smart, L-shaped staircase that contains additional storage. The city of Torino is famous for its Gianduiotto chocolate, Fiat car factories and great views of the Alps. Fred Buscaglione, a noted Italian jazz singer of the 1950s, used to live in this building, and he would have enjoyed the same view of the mountains.
