The challenge: convert a loft in a private home into a bedroom with a study that includes a large bookcase (on a small budget!). The answer: a hybrid solution that incorporates a staircase and bookcase in a single element. Because the space is small, the openness of the bookcase section allows it to feel airy and larger while providing structural support to the stairs. To make the space feel even larger, a south-facing skylight enables natural light to penetrate into the formerly dark spaces of the ground and first floors at the core of the house.
