The University of Coimbra General Library - Biblioteca Joanina da Universidade de Coimbra, Portugal

Although it was designed by Thomas Fuller & Chilion Jones, the real driving personality behind the library’s style and layout was Alpheus Todd, the librarian whose name sounds like a Harry Potter character. He wanted it to be modeled after the British Museum’s Reading Room, which is round with a domed roof that lets in light.

The alcove off the Writing Room in the Tower at Sissinghurst Castle, Kent. Would love to have a room like that either in the writing room or elsewhere in the house.

The alcove off the Writing Room in the Tower at Sissinghurst Castle, Kent where the main body of Vita Sackville-West's personal library of books are stored. Sissinghurst was the home of Vita Sackville-West and her husband Sir Harold Nicolson, near Cranbro
