1. TOUCH '19 Home-Studio

TOUCH Architect's home, office, and studio space combines the best of all worlds. On the second floor, employees can hold meetings in conference rooms, lounge in the multi-use dining space, or cook in the kitchen.

Architect: TOUCH Architect, Location: Nonthaburi, Thailand

From the architect: "The three-story small home studio for [our] architectural firm has been divided into three parts: an office space, a private house, and a co-sharing space. An indoor office area on the first floor is a working space for all employees. On the second floor, there is a co-sharing space. There is a tiny office space for founders which can be connected to a center space by sliding the glass partition to open it. Sanctuary space is located at the top floor of this home-studio."

2. Tree House

The home office in Tree House by Deforest Architects offers a striking view of the surrounding trees.

Architect: DeForest Architects, Location: Burien, Washington

From the architect: "Inspired by this hillside site and the owners’ childhood memories, we designed this family home to feel like a virtual walk in the woods."

3. Minimalist Urban Residence

ANACAPA Architecture designed Minimalist Urban Residence with California's temperate climate in mind. Radiant heat cement floors that extend into the study keep the home warm on cooler days.

Herman Miller Eames Aluminum Group Chair, Management
The Eames Aluminum Group Collection (1958) began as a special project for Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard, who needed seating for a home they were designing for industrialist J. Irwin Miller in Columbus, Indiana. The pair asked the Eameses to design light and mobile leisure chairs.
Herman Miller Nelson Swag Leg Desk
The Swag Leg Collection (1958) was named for a manufacturing process that uses pressure to curve and taper metal tubing. This desk perches lightly on signature sculptural legs stabilized by a solid walnut stretcher.

Architect: ANACAPA Architecture, Location: Santa Barbara, California

From the architect: "This private residence was designed for a young, creative entrepreneur. The structure maximizes natural light through an abundance of fixed and sliding glass, including skylights throughout the three-bedroom, two-bath home. A simple material palette of ipe and white stucco was selected for the exterior, while the interior is warmed with custom walnut cabinetry, Italian marble and brass fixtures."

4. House A326

The black studio wall in House A326 stands out against the rest of the home's palette of white and concrete. Almost all of the furnishings were custom-designed by Studio DiDeA and realized by local artisans.

Architect: Studio DiDeA, Location: Palermo, Italy

From the architecture firm's PR: "The owners, a couple, wanted an efficient home with generous storage spaces, and also a more contemporary look. The architects, following the clients' desires, renovated the apartment into a more airy, bright space with a better distribution."

5. Midcentury Style

"The first floor has a separate home office were we flipped the exterior color palette by painting the walls black and the windows white," says Hawthorn Builders.

Builder: Hawthorn Builders, Location: Needham, Massachusetts

From the builder: "This midcentury farm house has wonderful urban views out the back and considerable natural light. The first floor features an open-concept dining, kitchen, and family room with a spacious mudroom and dedicated home office. The home was constructed in a traditional wood frame building style, but incorporates all of the more modern conveniences."
