With the proliferation of information available in people's pockets, it can be illuminating to see just how much physical space even the smallest fraction of that information takes up in the real world, and Aurora Arquitectos' home design helps to do just that. The interior of the newly built home in Lisbon features a 270-degree, wall-to-wall library in the den area, showing the amount of space information cost before the onset of the digital era.

Appropriately, the book-filled apartment is located on the top floor of a Lisbon building that was erected in the 1970s, with a style to match. Of course, digital information was in its infancy in those years, so the insistence on ample space for paper literature is an apt reference to that time period.
