Books pretty much rule my apartment - they occupy an entire bedroom, have staked a claim in the living room, and have even crept onto the window sills. Seeing an apartment that embraces the take-no-prisoners style of book ownership makes me sympathize, relate, adore, envy, and flat-out COVET.
This beauty is the Brazilian apartment of Hussein Jarouche, designed by Franco-Brazilian architecture firm Triptyque. The two began their partnership when Jarouche needed a firm to handle the layout of his new São Paulo design store, MiCasa. The wraparound bookcase is a special design by Triptyque, called Treme Treme: "The centerpiece of the [apartment] project is a great bookcase embracing the external stairs and elevator to form an entrance that gives the impression of penetrating a cave. It is present in every room, unifying the entire project."
