Command centers and built-in desk areas are ideal for a multitude of tasks
Stay organized with a dedicated workspace
Busy families need a home plan that not only emphasizes their personal style, but is also convenient and functional. More and more activities in the home are centered around the kitchen, and Don Gardner Architects has created the e-space to offer even greater functionality in the area where family members congregate. An e-spaces are like the command centers of the home, and function as an accessible place for the family computer — perfect for looking up recipes, paying bills, doing homework or supervising younger users. E-spaces also serve as a place to charge cell phones, MP3 players and other electronic gadgets.
A larger e-space, like the one in the Drayton Hall Plan, is well suited to be a small home office or homework area. It’s open to the living areas, allowing conversation flow and a pleasant atmosphere.
Small corner office
The large, semi-private e-space in the Fincannon Plan is almost a full home office. It’s still open, but is set back from the living areas for a quieter place to focus. Cabinets and built-in L-shaped desk mean tons of storage and room to work.
If you do a lot of work from home, or prefer a workspace where you can shut out the busy world around you, a home design with a study or home office may be the best fit. The Laurelwood Plan has a study right off the foyer that welcomes you with French doors, a stately coffered ceiling, and a bay window. Many of our home plans include a bedroom/study, to use whichever way is ideal for your household.
