Studio Egue Y Seta transformed this 1950s dwelling in Madrid, Spain into a modern book lover’s dream. The residence consists of three rectangular-shaped floors topped by a gable roof and a small garden surrounds the entire house.
Inside, books abound. The living room seems like a miniature library. The custom-made solid wood bookcases that line the walls were recovered from the family’s previous home. The designers kept a bit of the home’s 1950s heritage — they suggest reading “while lying in one of the vintage armchairs from the 50s that flank the large chesterfield cognac leather sofa or when sitting around the superb dining table rescued from a disappeared nineteenth century French farmhouse.”
Another white bookcase reigns over the hallway on the top floor, with its impressive height. Next to it, there are plenty of spots to curl up with a book: the sofa, the butterfly chair, or up the metal ladder where there’s a hammock-style net suspended over the space. [Photography by Vicugo Foto]
