This 'Secret Room' Filled With Over 1,000 Books Is A Reader's Dream Come True

"An intimate respite within the forest."

Nestled in upstate New York, there is a home that would make any book-lover's heart flutter with excitement. 

The home, entitled "Hemmelig Rom," is a project by Brandon Padron's architectural practice Studio Padron, which focuses on architecture, interiors, and furniture design. In Norwegian, this project's title translates to "secret room." 

Padron designed the home for photographer Jason Koxvold, who, according to the studio, wanted a single room library to "serve as an intimate respite within the forest" alongside his vacation home.

When it came to constructing such a space, Studio Padron explains that "with a picture window to the forest, and a simple wood stove to provide heat, the space creates an environment for quiet reflection." Plus, Koxvold keeps over one thousand books stacked inside.

In photos of the home — which is not for rent — viewers get an inside look at the cozy cottage, which features a warm wooden interior and a stark black exterior.
