Vernacular design is rooted in its place even when it takes on a modern form and uses modern materials.

What an inspiration for a home office. Where is this?
Can you close this up? Are those some kind of hinges or something on the left, is there a folding door type thing? This is fantastic idea for a studio. I would modify to be budget-friendly.
