Narrow spaces are difficult for architects and interior designers to master—the opportunities for visual layering are restricted by the room’s width, but the distant vanishing point is a harsh visual anchor. For the Enclave Book Pavilion in NanTou Village, Shenzen, China, the team at Aether Architects offered a novel solution: A winding bookshelf. The steel frame takes the form of a warped grid, its footprint ebbing and bulging to offer space for seats and allow movement between the shelves. Indeed, the white installation spans from the front of the space to the back that–when viewed from a head-on perspective–offers a condensed and visually-appealing overview. See more from the pavilion below and explore our selection of Gestalten books about architecture, which span a wide series of topics from living on houseboats to vibrant inner-city apartments
