“Getting the house and actually having the opportunity to plan out a separate area for the office, just made sense,” said Marcus.
The couple’s renovation plans included their dream home office nook with a custom-built area to fit Louise’s father’s beautiful vintage cabinet, an elevated ceiling and a VELUX INTEGRA electric roof window to naturally illuminate the space from above.
“The amount of light that we get into the office every day, it's just amazing,” said Marcus.
The new bright working area creates a cosy and efficient atmosphere but more importantly, a level of comfort which has contributed to Marcus’ inspiration.
“It definitely adds to our creativity. I think if you generally don’t feel comfortable in the area or the room you're in, you automatically won't perform as good as you would in a nice environment,” said Marcus.
“On an everyday basis, sitting behind the screen all day, the daylight that we get from the windows and the energy and the level of happiness just increases exponentially,” said Marcus.
And as a young family, including the new home office in their renovation means they can be more flexible in how they balance their work and family life.
“We definitely liked the idea of having it so close to where we would actually spend our everyday life, so we can switch back and forth between the two functions,” said Marcus.
