Four-in-One Home Office
Short on space? This versatile small office is long on ingenuity.
How much can you fit into 150 square feet? How about a full-size desk, a bookcase, a guest bed, and a media center?
Space in the San Francisco home of architect David Hale is tight, so even a spare room must serve several purposes.
After an earthquake knocked out the shelf system in David's old study, he surveyed the damage and started over with space-savvy built-ins.
He designed a daybed, a media module that doubles as a room divider, bookshelves, and a desk large enough for sketching and planning. "When you build in things, you don't have those leftover little vacant corners," Hale says.
