Under Floor Bookcase

So this is a bit interesting, here is an apartment done by .27 Architects to have a bookcase inlaid into the floor.  From what I gather it doesn’t seem to have any cover, it simply stays exposed the whole time.  It got me thinking about what could you do with this concept, so a quick search revealed what others are doing.

  1. I’ve always liked more storage space and under the floor boards is a great place. The problem I see with it is that dust will get in there and be a problem unless it’s properly sealed in some way.

  2. That whole place seems nice. All of your furnature poping out of the floor. I wonder if you can get a smart phone remote control app to change it to purpose defaults. Press one button and everything closes, but the bed pops up for sleeping. Press another and the “socialize” layout comes out with all of it’s many couchs.

  3. I appreciate creativity, but not at the expense of practicality. I think that the books would get *very* dirty/dusty, and they would inevitably be stepped on, potentially damaging some of the books. How about a layer of Lexan over the whole thing, if one wants to retain the visibility? This also ties up a LOT of floor space, unlike compartments that are covered.

  4. The idea of keeping the wife in the floor under the desk is a nice idea.

  5. Keeping the “wife”? How about keeping the Negro? Funny but quite vicious comment. And what about this–maybe that woman is the architect? It doesn’t indicate otherwise………
    look it up http://www.point27.gr/ she is one of the architects of .27 and you DON”T know she’s a wife at all.
    disgusting.
