In the middle of the Covid-19 Pandemic, it is clear the office environment will change for good. So are at least for now the filming of newscasters and interviews. Where it is important that the background conveys a message. Books convey culture and knowledge. The New Home Office needs to be a part of the House for our new Normal to come. I predict it will become so more important as many more will work or work more time from home.

A few years back (before the pandemic) a couple retired to San Rafael’s Golf Course development. They had a 10’x10′ space, and they wanted an office with a love seat for the couple to watch tv, as well as a library. One wall was windows so we put the desks there, we incorporated the closet as this was a small bedroom initially. The love seat is to the left of the entrance and the TV opposite and surrounded by casing. To my surprise there is a 5′ free diameter clear space to breath. The challenge was met and the clients got what they needed.
Sound privacy was achieved. The client needed a small home office and the only space available was at the window end of the Family room. So we had to keep transparency. Leather top desk, chrome legs create a backsplash area top cabinet shelves.
For this home office, we took anentire wall and provided lower for starage behind doors and uppers for shelving. Between the two is the Countertop with Carrera marble. See the unit with items on it “After” on our Custom Home Libraries link below.
In this San Francisco Pacific Heights pent-house, we had to remodel the space to fit a countertop as well as a ppwser room under the stairs. We also thought it needed natural light so we introduced a glass floor on the level above.
