A spear closet is an architectural “left over” space of small size and irregular shape.
Backgroundangular or curvilinear geometry. These spaces are called “spear closets” because, due to their size and shape, they cannot serve any practical purpose other than possibly to store one’s spears.
Since, in the modern world, few people actually own spears and keep them at home, the term is ironic. However, it is a commonly used “professional slang” term in use among architects in the English-speaking world. A spear closet may actually have a door and be used as a storage closet. However, it may also simply be a “dead” space in a building which is completely surrounded by walls and which is inaccessible.
