Overview

Growing numbers of us work not only from home, but from anywhere; job flexibility has become a key requirement for employers and workers alike. This, in turn, has created new challenges for architects and designers, many of whom themselves start out working from home. They are tackling demand head on with innovative solutions that allow clients to transform their spaces to suit a wide range of needs, from multifunctional studios to homes that seamlessly combine work and family life.

Divided into five thematic sections, HomeWork explores the exciting variety of ways that the workplace can be integrated into the domestic environment. From standalone multifunctional furniture to mobile room dividers and dynamic solutions that fold out or pop up to create new work areas, each design addresses the unique needs of the space, client and working practices for which it was required, and tackles new questions about the rapidly evolving relationship between work and domestic life in the 21st century.

Anyone seeking fresh ideas on how to strike the perfect balance between living and working at home will find this an essential and timely resource.
