The Home Office

Would you like to work from home? And if you already do, would you like to have the right set up? When I was kid a friend asked me what would I do when I grew up. I said an Architect, partly because I knew some of them worked from home. That was many years ago, and I enjoy being and Architect and traveling to sites and so on, however I do enjoy having my purposely built studio at home. Below are Six Home offices we have done for our clients.

We hope you enjoy!

Update 5.4.2020.

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.

Here is an interesting article for  The New York Times.

Small home office in Marin San Francisco Bay

Floor plan for very small home officeA 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.

Built-in Cabinetry for the home office

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.

Home office and Library with wet bar and powder room below glass ceilingIn 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.


The New Home office.

The home office usually benefits from Built in cabinetry. The Built-inns make it a lot more home like. Custom cabinetry if good is time intensive therefore expensive.
Naturally a combination of line desks or tables as well as chairs though utilitarian serves the purpose and should fit well.
There is no question that if you are planing a new home, or remodeling an interior of a Home, that you are going to devote an area to the Home Office. We will all work from home either some days, all days, or part of your day. So it is better to plan for it.


Thank you to my clients. I tremendously enjoyed the process.

Thank you for visiting!
