By using bookshelves to clad the exterior walls, this combination house and library protects the privacy of its inhabitants’ living space while inviting visitors into the surrounding library. Semi-transparent FRP divides the interior and exterior spaces, allowing soft light to filter in between the bookshelves during the day, and letting the light leak out at night. Light creates a connection between inside and outside.
