“Shelf-Pod” Home by Kazuya Morita

Designated “Shelf-Pod,” this 557-square-foot house in Osaka Prefecture, Japan, created by Kazuya Morita Architecture Studio, is an innovative, simplistic, and elegant living space built around a specific concept: being capable of efficiently housing 10 tons of books and incorporating that as a major and stunning design element. It is a book-lover’s paradise. Shelf-Pod was commissioned by a young historian with an extensive collection of books on Islamic history.
