What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Get Ideas for a Cozy Library Space
Library landings are also often wasted space. Give people a reason to pause by installing library shelves in the landing.
Becky Harris added this to Staircase Landings Worth a Linger
This landing bookcase is a strong design element. Look closely and you'll notice the shelves continue from the ground floor to the top wall of the landing. A clear floor in front lets you look down and appreciate this fact from above, while open risers let you look at it as you ascend.
Becky Harris added this to 12 Libraries That Lightened Up
Placing this library space at the end of the stair landing is another brilliant use of space that is often wasted.
John Hill added this to Lighten Up With Glass Floors
Here is a library that doubles as a stairway. The tall bookshelves run across multiple floors off the stair landing. The glass floor gives this wall of books some cohesion.
