designing a home office is a trick to avoid traffic jams and crowded streets, as often happens in Jakarta. How to arrange for effective and efficient?
Currently designing a home office has become part of the trend. The reason, in addition to avoiding traffic jams, the trick is somewhat more effective and efficient because it allows everything to be fit despite interest around the house is not a business area. Moreover, moving the office into the dwelling is also a great way that is profitable.
For example, open a small diner. In addition to cooking hobby, also an advantage because (perhaps) will be selling merchandise. However, the question then is because from the outset, we do not provide a special place to work at home.
The division of space requirements were so impressed perfunctory because the work is done in any place. Such behavior would unwittingly become a major problem in the house.
Therefore, we must think about it as residents from the beginning to build homes and design it wisely. That way, the atmosphere cozy office or business space that want presented in the home is not much different from the actual office space.
According to architect Briyan Talaosa, the concept is often called the small office home office (SOHO), which can be interpreted as a small business that still can be run from home or their products should we call the home industry.
Regarding the design, Briyan said, as well as planning the spaces in the house. However, you need to consider is the shape of the activities performed in that space.
In a sense, Briyan states, each activity would indicate a different function in space so that this factor also which later became the determinant of flow and shape of furniture and accessories that you will use in the workspace.
In addition, the number of people who berkegiatan also determine the design of an office in the house. That is, according to Briyan, whether the design you create, its capacity is in conformity with the number of people who will move in that space?
"Do not let the space look cramped for room size does not fit with the people in it," said Briyan.
Every time you design a room, words such as circulation is always raised as an important part in designing. Therefore, the circulation will determine a person is comfortable or not in that space. Circulation could mean circulatory motion of the occupants, light, or air.
Take for example, because no available backup space, you must use the garage as a means of employment. For that, the number of openings and how much of the incoming air is important to consider.
Regarding distribution, you should start choosing a suitable room to be used as an office or place of business. Divide according to its function. Space for public and family rooms, for example. Restaurant business usually use a garage or carport.
Strive restaurant adjacent to the kitchen in order to support the work in the restaurant, such as washing dishes and cooking food. For office space, design according to the interests of the office. There are supporters of property such as computers, office desk, and bench.
One who apply the concept of SOHO is a child psychologist at the Institute of Applied Psychology, University of Indonesia, Febiola Priscilla Setiawan. Febiola revealed, there is a room in his house a special office to work on the project. He argues, though the work was brought to the home office, it is not a problem. In fact, she felt more efficiently and not "chased" time.
"Just so we know how to divide the space in the house according to its function, so that the interests of family members with the business office is not disturbed," said Febiola.
