The study room and balcony on the second floor.
The full height gray cabinets extend into the office space, blurring the boundary between office and kitchen.  Seamless glazing further increases the transparency between spaces.

The walls are made of exposed bricks in reference to the original Victorian house.
Painted by hand, then photographed, enlarged, and printed digitally, each of Calico’s designs are made to be custom-sized for a space. The result: a visually immersive environment that reads more as a mural, with an expansive, non-repeating pattern. While the Copes recommend carefully priming any surfaces for large-scale installations, a smaller swatch can add an equally impactful accent when framed and hung, as shown in their home office.
Eric Lamers of Hammerhead, a craft-based contractor specializing in midcentury renovation projects, worked on the house before Andrew and his wife, Dustin Ferrer, acquired it in 2013, but it still needed a good deal of restoration.

The long table accomodates enough room for the client’s business meetings and research materials for writing projects or for guests to use as a breakfast table.
Responding to restrictions set by local planning authorities, the architects lowered the library’s floor level to preserve its cathedral ceilings. “We try to work with problems, not against them,” Maynard says. “You now descend three steps into the studio and discover the desk at garden height, rather than above it.” The solution also allowed for the installation of built-in reading nooks.
The study features floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that bring the outdoors in. Space-saving custom walnut desks are accented by a Pixo Optical LED Table Lamp, an AJ table lamp, and a 1958 Eames Management Chair.

Whether it be a study, library, or craft room, the modern office is a tranquil place for you to flex your creativity, conduct meetings, and carry out day-to-day business. Cram the shelves with your favorite books, put the table in the middle of your room, or splurge on the perfect desk lamp—a great office should reflect your personal taste and inspire your best work.
