Work and home life are blending together much more seamlessly than ever these days, and we’ve got technology to thank for that. For many people, having a home and a home office are vital parts of the job– or you’re a small business owner who works out of the house. Either way, you require some sort of work space. This Shoup Residence in Oakland, California is full of that laid back, effortless CA style.
Building Lab Inc. overhauled an existing warehouse into these separate spaces, allowing the owner to have a workplace that is on the property. The finishes and fixtures are slightly simple, but they showcase the details well. A built in magazine rack in the bathroom wall? A kitchen that literally opens up to the outdoors? Creative, yet functional spaces are the highlight of this home, and the elevated bed is a small space but it takes the cake for us.
