The Translucent Office: Hidden In Plain Sight
Fitting your home office into the greater space of your home is a challenge for anybody, but especially somebody living in an open loft. Today’s featured workspace is cleverly hidden beneath a loft bed.
Apartment Therapy readers Victor and Soeun made their small but open loft-style apartment look even bigger by working with an almost entirely white colour scheme. To conceal the office tucked under their loft bed they sheathed it in semi-translucent plastic boards so that light inside filtered out in a diffused way and light outside filtered in so they didn’t feel like they were working in a coffin. The end result is a workspace that is hidden from sight by blending into the design elements in the rest of their home—they used the light-within-translucent columns technique in every room.
