Have a wooded lot? Time to build a forest book nook!

If you're in search of an inspiring live work home – a forest book nook – try these digs on for size! The Scholar’s Library in Olive Bridge, New York by local architecture firm Gluck & Partners is an unusual raised house plan surrounded by lush, leafy woods. This simple but striking space sits perched among the treetops, with a study space enclosed in windows at the top, and the actual library – housing approximately 10,000 books – tucked in the windowless area below. At the very top, a wafer-thin roof appears to be floating in thin air. The glass panels supporting it slide open for an in-nature ambiance. Measuring 20 by 20 by 20 ft., this cube house in the trees is a true forest retreat. Gluck & Partners.
