Just sharing pics of an old project of mine!

Client: Newspaper editor and owner of a PR firm

Space: Roofdeck that was turned into an enclosed home office space

Style preference: Since he and his team often work out of the office–either in fast food restaurants or cafés–he wanted his home office to have the look and feel of a café, particularly those industrial-style, third-wave coffee shops.

Budget: Minimal, as there was no major renovation done. We only repainted some walls and added a divider made from powder-coated aluminum to separate the pantry sink from the work area. We also customized desks for his staff made from filing cabinets and wood planks.

Here are some BEFORE pics of the space.

And here are the AFTER shots!

I provided a dropleaf table here that my client and his staff can use to shoot products for their publications. The twin rollup shades also act as a plain white backdrop solely for this purpose. Dropleaf table from Ikea (Furniture Source). Twin roller shades (sunscreen + blackout) from ABC Decor.

That’s it! Hope you liked this mini tour!
