Office Space

A homeowner wanted to remodel her Woodley Park rowhouse to make what was a dark, inconvenient space more attractive and functional. She turned to Bruce Wentworth to enclose the sleeping porch and connect it to an adjacent bedroom. The renovation would also create a home office out of a drab internal room (above).

 

Then Now
The interior room was dark and uninviting with no windows and a low ceiling. It had unintentionally become a junk area. Wentworth added a skylight to brighten the windowless space. He designed a tray ceiling that slopes up to the new skylight and adds a foot to the ceiling height.
The client lacked a desk area for working at home as well as storage and bookshelves. A custom desk unit with cabinets, shelves, and corkboard was installed. It provides ample room to store items and books neatly.
Space was drab with scuffed paint and no effective lighting. The new office area has been painted a bright teal hue with crisp off-white trim and built-ins. Recessed and task lighting has been added.
