Bookstores are usually casual shops with a simple design and sometimes boring interior. But this one of a kind bookstore will blow your mind and you won’t be able to stop staring at it because it looks like it belongs in some kind of a sci-fi movie.
The Zhongshuge Bookstore can boast not only with the wide range of book genres but also with an eye-deceiving, trippy interior that makes every visit there a magical experience. Located within the bustling center of Binjiang District, China, this bookstore is definitely one of the most beautiful examples of modern architecture and interior design.
The lampshade-shaped bookshelves in the lobby are probably the first thing you’ll notice when you walk into the store and their warm, dim light will guide your way through the rest of the library. The reflection of the bookshelves on the mirrored ceiling creates the impression of an optical illusion, while in one of the reading rooms the shelves become steps that you can sit on. When you come in the children section, you’ll enjoy the colorful world of Chongqing’s landscape and feel like a kid again while reading fairytales.
This bookstore has definitely found a way to enhance the already special experience of diving into a new exciting book.
