The Lofted Office: Out Of Sight And Spacious

Who wouldn't want to work in an office that sits like a fort above the surrounding area? Today's featured workspace is a loft-within-a-loft design that feels more like a secret hideaway than an office.

Lifehacker reader Chuck Rifici has an unusual home office. Within his loft-style apartment is a separate mini-loft area raised up behind the wall of the entryway and the kitchen, accessible by a small staircase. This loft-within-a-loft area is just the right size for a big desk, printer stand, and file cabinet. By far the most notable feature about the space is the half-height wall that surrounds it. When you're seated you feel like you're in a private space but the open design allows indirect sunlight to flood the area. More importantly a room that size with traditional walls and a standard height ceiling would seem very small and most people would feel like they were working in a closet. The open design instead gives you a feeling like you're working in a tree house and not a coat room. Take a closer look at his lofted office below.
