We love rooms that serve dual purposes, like this home office within a 2,000 square foot Tribeca loft. Architect Robert Hirsch built in a floating teak counter that acts as a home office for two. Open up the counter's flip-top to reveal the desks and drawers between. Close it to hide anything that may be distracting from the movie being screened on the wall above; seen from the adjoining living room.
Other space saving solutions from the architect; a centrally located ebony wall that hides a guest murphy bed. When the bed is folded down,translucent curtains are pulled out, creating a sleeping area for guests.
