In this project, a mother of school-age children was running a small business from home. She needed her work to be close to the heart of the home but did not want to pack everything away when the children came home from school. This workstation in a cupboard, which cost £3,000-£5,000, was perfect. She could pull up a chair and have her phone, desktop computer and filing all in one neat space. At 3pm she was able to close the cupboard doors and give her attention to her children.
In the gallery: Closing the concertina door on this office allows the desk and paperwork to be tucked away; When not in use, the workstation appears to be a built-in cupboard, taking up minimal space.
