In The Round

There is something about quirky spaces that makes them very appealing and this little round room fits the bill. It is found on the U of Toronto campus where you can find many of the old homes along St George St have been incorporated into the university rather than being torn down. This old home is part of Woodsworth College and I wonder who gets to use this room.

When those curtains swing open, such a warm spot, I bet.

I imagine it would make a great spot for a reading lounger.

judging by those shadows it looks like it is taking advantage of a sun trap.

I would be happy to take that room if it is available, RedPat.

Quirky homes alright.

I wonder if students ever boarded in them or do.
