Linebox Studio's Little Epic Workspace

Linebox Studio's Little Epic Workspace

When Linebox Studio received a request to "re-create the large open spaces, industrial feel and raw materials of my loft in a home that was not in a building," they didn't just build an open space with an exposed ceiling, they created the ultimate office, while just large enough for one, that literally takes the term "tall ceilings" to another level.

Because the space was built on a 14' x 70' lot, both the client and the architects knew they were going to be restricted on width. The obvious reaction? Build up, up, and up!

The result is a two-story mini house that combines a clean, industrial aesthetic and wide open floor plan. Additionally, using strategic lighting, you can create a space that looks even larger than it truly is. Shooting warm lighting both downward and upward, you can start to feel the sense of "epic" using the existing architecture of a space. Or perhaps just draw attention away from hanging cords that you don't want guests to see.

Still, it's hard to ignore the details. Poured concrete. Baseboard-less white painted drywall. Extra long windows for natural light. It's a perfect mix of industrial and low-maintenance practical that works well for the modern remote worker.

Love or hate Linebox's approach? Let us know what you think of this industrial little workspace!
