Spaces for coworking and events, multifunctional beds and shelves: this is how Teatum + Teatum transformed this High Street house into a project that joins your work life with your personal one.
House gained a new meaning this last and present year. It’s the place where most of us start spending even more time in and it’s a place that for some people became a source of income and innovation.
When home becomes your workplace
Lots of spaces can sometimes lose their initial purpose – the reason they were built for – become places for something else like a place of work, relaxation, collaboration, and in some cases, all of them together.
This is looked at as a new phenomenon that was born with the pandemic because our work and personal life kinda got entwined together. The High Street House in London is a new residential and office project by Noiascape, a company that develops hybrid project in London for rental.
The Teatum+Teratum London Studio gives life to these projects, combining architecture and urban planning, building a complex of studios and apartments. The spaces are separated and independent but all of them connect through a common room that is dedicated to events.
The goal of this project is to create opportunities and interaction between people who live in the building and to facilitate those meetings and making it easier for people to meet. An example of that is the steel staircase whose handrail hides and transforms into a small bookcase.
The project is marked by the use of vivid colors and furniture custom-made.
This project is the perfect example of the time we are living where the barrier between work and home disappeared. For example, in this project, the beds transform into a place of work because they can be transformed into desks.
