The Hidden Library Loft Home Office

Living in a loft can present some problems, most notably the lack of defined spaces. Because We Can design studio was brought in to tackle this very interior design dilemma and they came up with an ingenious way to maximize utility, creating a nearly hidden home office space, without intruding on the open space floor plans.

What's obviously most striking about this design solution from Because We Can is the wrap-around stairs that double up as shelving cubbies on the side, providing usable and decorative storage space without the presence of bulky and typical furniture. It's sort of like a modern under the stairs, Harry Potter home office, and a two-in-one winner in our book.

Underneath the library loft [sigh] is a custom fold down desk with roll out bench, creating an easy to hide home office; a modest sized iMac tucked away in the corner (we'd probably would personally want the iMac wall mounted into a recessed element of the wall above the fold down table for more usable surface area, but perhaps this owner doesn't require as much computer time as we do. Nevertheless, it's a great idea of utilizing often neglected and wasted space for double duty.
