Introducing our latest Linked Extension incorporating a modern contemporary Home Office added to our clients Tarragindi home.
This new modern office nestled beside the existing timber Deck, overlooking the established garden and far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the disturbance from the family.
We’re all aware since Covid-19 that the home and work balance has been very difficult to manage. Not only has reconfiguring areas in the home been difficult to accommodate the home office, but also separating the work life from the family life been difficult as well, especially those of us that are new to this type of working environment.
Our Tarragindi family approached us with the dilemma they had, both parents working from home and in different industry roles. Both required their own separate space in the home. Not to mention they were raising two children and trying to keep family life as normal as possible whilst working from home.
Listening to their concerns and walking through the home we soon came to the conclusion space was very tight inside the existing home, this took us to eventually deciding we’d need to create a new added space to the home and linking it to the existing home, so this new space wasn’t detached from the remainder of the home.
We decided to link the new office to the existing timber Deck, only issues we encountered on positioning the office in this position was bridging over the sewerage drains and being far enough away from the side boundary setbacks.
This project wasn’t so much about juggling budgets it was more about building a home office that was attached to the home, built with plenty of natural light overlooking the garden. The client was also concerned about the hot Brisbane summers and with office equipment heating the room up as well. We suggested building the office from our modular Cladular Wall Panels giving thermal values above R3 and installing roofing panels which offered thermal values above R5. The other benefit this home office gave was another space under the floor which the client is planning to pave and turn into a leisure area.
As we handed over this new office space back to our clients they smiled and said the best thing about this office is at 5pm we lock the office up and walk back into the house.
