Family LoftContemporary Home Office, Boston
Modern loft. Surfaces built into the new railing atop the stair create a functional work area with a fantastic view and clear shot to the play space below. A wall separating the master bedroom from the double height living space was replaced with a folding glass door to open the bedroom to the living space while still allowing for both visual and acoustical privacy.

6. Create a perch with a view. In this Boston loft, a desk cantilevers off a railing, providing a view down to the main living space and out the windows to the city. The spot draws the family over for some stand-up work. See the rest of this loft
Up in the loft, a steel framework has a desk surface attached to the handrail, providing a work area with a great view. Horowitz replaced the existing drywall that closed off the master bedroom with translucent folding doors that close for privacy and quiet, but can open fully. The translucent doors connect the master bedroom to the main living space and open it to the vast city views. They also the bedroom to borrow light from the main living space.Doors: NanaWall; door hardware: Hafele Hardware
What Houzzers are commenting on:
it can be tricky to fine-tune a standing desk’s height. There are online calculators to help you figure out what’s best ergonomically based on your body measurements. Be sure to wear shoes that give good support when standing and factor those into your height measurement. You may also decide to add a supportive mat, like the ones commonly used in kitchens in front of the sink. If you do, you’ll need to factor this into your height measurement as well.
