With more and more common Singaporeans working from home lately, home offices have become an important part when planning the design of a home. If you’re looking to carve out a home office of your own, take a look at and be inspired by these home offices that combine form and function in equal measure!

#1 Room with a view

Space: 4-room HDB flat
Location: Woodlands
Home to: 2 adults
Designer: Free Space Intent

Instead of demolishing the entire wall, only a partial section was removed, allowing the home office to feel visually open while leaving room for aligning a desk against the lower half of the wall. This also allowed for the exterior of the room to be enhanced with decorative accents. Additionally, being completely enclosed floor-to-ceiling, the space also offers quiet and privacy while allowing the owners to look into the living area.

#2 Blue’s clues

Awash in brilliant shots of blue, this study perfectly caters to the homeowners’ lifestyle needs in that the generously-sized custom-built table that was built for two was able to comfortably accommodate both their work and gaming needs. For added functionality, the table also hosts handy slots and niches that can easily keep important letters and documents organised.

#3 Open office

Space: 5-room BTO flat
Location: Bukit Batok Street 22
Home to: 2 adults
Designer: Space Atelier

Having the whole flat to themselves, the owners wanted the openness of an office-living-dining space. As such, an elevated platform and a half-height wall was installed opposite the dining zone, which carves out a dedicated work area for the occupants. Complete with a stretch of built-in storage cabinets, this workstation that looks out to the communal areas allow them to enjoy each other’s company no matter the activity they may be engaged in.

#4 Light and airy

Home: 4-room HDB flat
Location: Lorong 1 Toa Payoh
Home to: 2 adults

To create an open-concept communal area with a seamless spatial flow, the entire wall between the living room and guest room was knocked down. However, recognising the need for there to still be some semblance of privacy, a glass display case stands between the two zones and provides a clear demarcation while still letting in light and air.  What is left of the space is then split into a study and a workshop, with a glass door providing additional privacy for occupants in the latter area.

If you’re not fixed in the purpose of your room, take a cue from this home office of Melissa C. Koh and hubby James Chen. Devoid of major renovation works, the space was instead fitted with plenty of loose and slim-legged furnishings – like his-and-hers work desks and IKEA book- and wall-shelves – that can be removed as and when necessary, allowing the dynamics of the space to change in accordance to their needs.
