House by Gianni Botsford

Fresh out of the newest issue of Wallpaper*, this house was designed by architect Gianni Botsford for his father's whopping 16,000 books. I really like the transparent open end of the house with the massive book collection. Framed by the natural landscape, this house on stilts also reminds me of the Farnsworth House. Simple but beautiful. via Kitsunenoir.

Wow! I can't imagine having so many books! I agree with Melissa, I'd love to spend an afternoon there checking out the books - and exploring the house of course:)
