Workspace of the Week: Way up high, in the sky

This week’s Workspace of the Week is Frederik’s lofted home office:

On Unclutterer, we write a great deal about taking advantage of vertical space when organizing. Usually we’re referring to using walls for shelving or bulletin boards or creating cubbies. In this example, however, the vertical space in the home has been transformed into a small office. “The upper deck,” as Frederik refers to it, is large enough to fit a large monitor, task lighting, and a small bookcase for storage along the floor. There isn’t a chair pictured, but I assume there is one in the space. The most cumbersome thing about the office, I imagine, would be lugging all the equipment up into the space. Overall, however, I find it to be a wonderfully imaginative way to fit an office into a home. Thank you, Frederik, for sharing your lofted office with us.

Want to have your own workspace featured in Workspace of the Week? Submit a picture to the Unclutterer flickr pool. Check it out because we have a nice little community brewing there. Also, don’t forget that workspaces aren’t just desks. If you’re a cook, it’s a kitchen; if you’re a carpenter, it’s your workbench.

    Although the place looks rather devoid of natural light…

    Jodi, if you look carefully at the pictures, you will see the cables strung across the open edge of the loft. They’re not very thick, but if they’re steel, they’re sturdy enough to keep Frederkik safe!

    I love it because it would cure me of “just popping onto my computer for a second…” (and still being there an hour later. I would have to really need to use my computer to undertake climbing a ladder. 🙂 Very great use of space.

    I am florescent green with envy…

    Although, I bet it is hot up there in the summer, perfect for winter being up in the warm area by the ceiling.
