Merging living and working spaces into a cosy home but keeping these two functions well-defined and separated
A Perfect Home Office Design in this Taipei Apartment
By Fei W.
During the times when we have to go out to work, we always look forward to the time we can stay at home and sometimes, even hope that we can complete our daily work without going out.
Most of us have a dream of working from home, hoping to commute only one minute a day to reach the office. Now that it's a reality for the majority, the main issue is that it is easy to develop a state of laziness and the line between our personal and work lives is blurred. Based on these concerns, Shih-Shih Interior Design specifically designed an open concept home office that is separated from the private living areas for a business owner in Taipei. It may sound a bit too good to be true, but after careful and ingenious planning by the designer, using the characteristics of building materials and tonal colours, the public area and the private space are perfectly separated. Even if a client comes to visit, it will not feel like there is an invasion of privacy. Maintaining mutual mobility makes each space functional, fulfilling the homeowner's dream of a perfect home office.
