Black Box

Black, Gold, Black, White.

Black, Gold, Black, White.

My office shed is named "BlackBox." It's a box filled with techie stuff, painted black on the outside.


I created glass roof panels and glass paneled windows so that the light can just come in. No need to have too much lighting, hence, just one fluorescent lamp for night time. The roof window panels can be opened so that the air can just come in, too. I put in mind energy saving--my way of not jumping into the global warming problem bandwagon. I also like looking at the heavens on cloudless nights so the roof panel windows double-up as viewing windows.

I made a sliding door so that the door won't take too much space when it swings in or out. The furnishings are my own designs and they are exactly what I want for the shed. I want something futuristic and modern. The lounging chair is called Luna, the computer chair is called Bishop. The gold accents are inspired by my alma mater's chant "Black, gold, black, white." The shed is painted different per wall so that there would be depth and it wouldn't be too boring. I used neutral colors---the hues i used here are black, white, and tones of gray.

I can just be here all day long, watching TV, surfing the net, eating (notice there's fridge and a microwave haha!), and sleeping. It's like disappearing and still being connected with the outside world. Well, sorta. :)

Simplicity makes it perfect
by: jhepy

i can see that the design was really from the heart of the designer... i love the idea of using the natural lightning, it gives more elegance at the same time the simplicity of it makes it more relaxing to the eyes... not too much tensions going on... just focusing and understanding the needs of the room is the plus factor also of the design...
