• A cube of heaven in the woods

    Who says technology has taken over the world and that the new generation is busy building space crafts for life in the oblivion like fictitious fools had chosen to live? Life is much more meaningful and real and wise man Peter Gluck proves so. The architect and his wife, a Japanese history scholar has produced a bookworm’s heaven in the midst of lush greenery up in the Catskill Mountains in the US. The ‘Scholar’s Library’ (how intelligent!) as it is called was originally built to preserve books but now features a top level with full-size windows, on all four sides, looking out into the surrounding forest.


    The structure is a 20 feet cube and contains more than 10,000 books belonging to the couple. Aside from the book shelves, the top level consists of a relaxing study where one can sit and read on a comfortable sofa or utilise the work spaces for anything more serious. It is a brilliant idea and such a great idea for people looking at a peaceful hideaway!
