Futuristic retreat for poets plopped between two townhouses

Jon Lott, of PARA-project, designed this modern poetry-writing studio that is humorously placed between two traditional townhouses in a residential neighborhood of Syracuse, New York.

The ‘Haffenden House’ features a garage, a library and a reading room.

This is a writer’s dream-space with diffused natural light throughout the home.

The reading room, on the third story, makes maximum use of the sun’s light with a bowl-shaped ceiling.

To top off this literary paradise there is a bathtub in middle of the second floor library.
