Uroko House Book Igloo – A Lair for Literature Lovers
Posted By Beth Shea On July 1, 2009 @ 11:30 am In Inhabitots | No Comments
‘Bedtime stories’ becomes a literal interpretation in the design of the Uroko House Book Igloo  — a cozy, fort-like enclosure of bookshelves which encircle a bed. Being surrounded in slumber by books is a bibliophile’s dream, and Point Architects  enables lovers of literature to wrap themselves up in their treasured tales while drifting off to sleep in this cleverly constructed lair . The backless shelves allow one to grab a book from inside or outside the Igloo . Conceptually designed for children, we think it’s a telltale sign that as adults, we’re equally smitten with the Uroko House Book Igloo , and wouldn’t mind curling up with a good book, or fifty, in one of our own.
