Working from Home in Lincoln Park

SCOPE: redesign and update a home office for a couple to share

The homeowners had made due with a dark, cluttered, outdated office for long enough, when they decided it was time to update and make the space functional for both of them. At only 140 sq. ft, with one window, and an 8′ ceiling, every inch needed to be utilized while keeping it open and airy.

With modular Italian furniture, a custom layout was designed to suit their exact needs. Each have a separate work area with file drawers and storage. A floor to ceiling bookcase provides plenty of room for books. The glossy taupe with brown-gray wood tones keep it modern, yet warm and inviting.

An LED recessed lighting system was selected for its clean lines and customization opportunities. We designed a simple rectangle to direct light exactly where it is needed over the work areas. It is punctuated by 3 square recessed lights to brighten up the center of the room. This combination creates a striking design and glare free illumination.

To make the most of the existing closet, it was expanded to the ceiling, and filled with shelving and drawers. Matte bronze sliding glass doors allow light to pass through while hiding the closet contents beautifully. This office is now a light filled, updated and functional office for two to share and enjoy.
