GARAGE CONVERSION DESIGN IDEAS.
We all need our own territory to manage emotions. I noticed that I tend to sit in the same chair over and over again in classrooms. Apparently, it’s important to me to have a place to return to, to claim as my own.
Perhaps I can convert our storage dump of a garage into my home office. I can breathe new life into an unclaimed space. I can celebrate independence and self-sufficiency through design. So can you. You can create a quiet place with plenty of even, shadow-free light for sculpture or sewing. With big project table and a wall of bookshelves.
Hence, today’s design tip:
AUGMENT & ALIGN (garage conversion design idea)
Solution: Double as a studio — multi-task, as usual. Allow new glass doors to fold back for occasional parking. Design lightweight flexible shelving to house books, reference materials.
Keep in mind intermittent client presentations (visitors to my workplace do not need to traipse through the main house to get there). Design a conference/work table on wheels for maneuverability. (see more in ideaBOOK 03)
Added Benefit: Merging seamlessly with the garden; paradise found.
