Work is what we do and even though we are not just all about work, we most likely love what we do.
We tend to work from everywhere since our phones and tablets are mini command centres and working from home seems to be the direction to go, however that means a well-lit and thought-through space at home becomes more important.

Over the coming months I am going to share some tips and tricks relating to making the most of sunlight, energy efficient building forms, using thermal mass, smart materials, renewable energies and so on. First up, how to design your building with sun and daylight in mind!
Yes, indeed it is the room divider from a few weeks back which I wanted to take and use it in a totally different context - this time probably all the other way around.

So here is my take on a simple one bedroom flat conversion to an open plan space with a room divider.
