UnWaste Bookcase

Photo by TM Photo

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The apartment, in a former warehouse in central Melbourne, is only about 50 or 60 square meters (no more than 640 square feet), and was originally a studio. Milbourne collaborated on the project with the homeowner, his friend Leyla Acaroglu, who runs a lifestyle assessment consultancy called Eco Innovators, to develop the shape-shifting unit. When closed, the bookcase extends from wall to wall and floor to ceiling, separating the living room from the bedroom.

Small homes are notorious for two things: lack of storage and lack of privacy when guests are over. But Australian architect Ben Milbourne solved both of those problems with one transforming floor-to-ceiling bookcase. The unit stores everything the homeowner needs, while six rotating panels can close off the space for privacy or completely open for more light and better views.
