Home Office Space in a garage by architecten | en | en

Eindhoven, The Netherlands there’s a small green suburb called Schuttersbosch. There you can find a lovely villa that was built for a former Philips executive. The owner felt the need to have a private workspace like a home office where he could work and not feel like he’s doing that at home. A very handy solution was to create such a space in the indoor garage. However, nobody likes to feel like he’s working in a garage or basement or anywhere else he might find some space. That’s why creating a home office is a good idea.

In this case the project was conducted by architecten|en|en and the office was completed in 2011. Since the main goal was to camouflage the space and to make not look like a garage, a solution was to add a mask-shaped volume to the existing garage. This provides extra floor space and a south faced strip of glass dividing the addition from the existing roof also provides an abundance of daylight.

The result was a simple box-like structure that was tuned into an office. Here the owner can take care of his business and manage all the work-related problems. Even though the office is part of the house, there’s a totally different atmosphere in there. It’s not home but it’s not a garage either. It’s a home office.{pics by Post & Van Leeuwen Photographers and found on archdaily}
