Made from pre-loved wood, this unexpected shelving solution also optimises light and air flow
This talking point of an interior design solution may well address both.
Architect Ben Milbourne (Bild Architecture), eco-designer Leyla Acaroglu (Eco Innovators) and specialist furniture designer David Waterworth (Against the Grain), have together created the UnWaste Bookcase, a sustainably designed full-wall rotating library made from recycled wood.
What the architect said:
A split-level open plan warehouse conversion in Melbourne’s CBD needed a flexible solution to divide the open space into two rooms, while retaining the option of keeping the larger combined space when needed.
The answer needed to allow for light and airflow throughout the spaces but also provide a division between living and sleeping areas.
The James Bond-inspired solution involves a 4.6m-high by 3.8m-wide rotating library, allowing books to be stored and accessed from either side and maximising air-flow and light by simply pushing on the corner to allow for full 360 degree rotation.
