This wall-to-wall bookshelf has an additional neat trick — it’s made to withstand earthquakes.

The clever design from Japanese architects Shinsuke Fujii features a home with ample — and we mean ample — shelf space, covering one wall of the house.

But to keep its contents from falling off in the event of an earthquake, the shelf leans inwards at a slant.

Best of all, the lean means you won’t even need a ladder to reach its top. Simply climb it and stand on each rack to get what you need.

De acuerdo con la architect, the owners of the house in Yokohama City requested the bookshelf, after their previous house was hit by an earthquake.

“By setting the walls [at a slant], it also expands the space [of the] living room,” the company said.

To accommodate the unique slanting bookshelf, the house looks pretty remarkable from the outside as well.

Steel walls and walnut flooring makes for an industrial yet cosy nook that’ll truly calm any book-lover’s soul.

Envy!
