This Vancouver house carved out of stumps in the early 1900′s: “…3 rooms.The lower stump on right was the kitchen, the lower part of the highter stump on the left was the living room. The bedroom, doorless, was reached by a ladder removed in daytime to the kitchen…” It reminds us a favorite young adult novel we’ve read a million times: My Side of the Mountain, about a teenager who runs away from home to live in the Catskills. He makes a cozy house out of a huge hemlock stump
This is the Walstrom House by California-based architect, John Lautner. Even though I would not classify this as a library per se, I find the design of the bookshelves in the open area floorplan as a unique twist to a reading space.
