Note how the border around the polished floor follows Simon Spencer’s design for the built in bookcases.  The floor was laid after the bookcase installation so that this could be achieved and kept the floor in pristine condition because the bookcases were installed first.

This is a typical examples of Simon Spencer’s design ability in overcoming the problems of built in book cases with a returned corner book case in this tiny library .  It was designed to be fitted into the side hall of a country house to accommodate the books and allow for a quiet area in which to work and to get away from the family at home.
