Plan & Perspective
HomeWorks are an independent office space suitable for any work at home professional.
This facility is less than 250 square feet yet has ample work space including equipment room (copier, printer, file cabinets, etc), half bath and kitchenette area.
The user would not require any of the main house functions during their workday meaning time spent in the HomeWorks shed would be productive. The work area has plenty of built-in office furniture, relaxing lounge area and plenty of natural light which is controllable with the exterior rolling shutters. In Addition, the rolling entry doors also allow for additional natural light and ventilation when weather conditions are favorable.
The equipment room and half bath are accessible via a few steps and have operable skylights for daytime illumination and natural ventilation. The kitchenette, with under counter refrigerator, microwave and sink allow for easy preparation of the morning coffee and lunchtime snack.
This HomeWorks design basically takes your city center office, removes the non-essentials and places itself efficiently and attractively in your back garden.
