The Space: A long hallway on the ground floor of a newly renovated home in the Noe Valley neighborhood of San Francisco.
The Need: The Client wanted a clean, contemporary home office that did not look like it was part of the hallway. The office had to be compact yet have sufficient shelf space for books, drawer space for files, and cabinetry to house and hide a printer, peripherals and office supplies.

The Solution: InHouse created a room out of one end of the hallway by adding a wall with a pocket door which matched a similar door across the hall. The entry to the new home office was positioned to allow for a compact contemporary cherry home office to be built along an entire wall of the former hall. An armoire with pocketing doors provides storage for the printer/fax/scanner on a pull-out shelf, space for supplies and two lateral file drawers. Adjacent to the armoire is a desk for computer work, additional file space, all purpose drawers and a CPU cabinet for a desktop computer. “Floating” shelves run the length of the wall above the desk. Wire management is integrated throughout all components. Color consultation services were also provided.
