Safer at Home - Studio Architecture in Austin

Purpose is a primary driver of design. Consider the names of the spaces in our homes: living room, dining room. Shelter in place has many of us looking at our homes through COVID-colored lenses, prompting us to repurpose these rooms as makeshift schools, home offices, and gyms. This kind of unexpected upheaval can be both physically and emotionally tumultuous, so this week we asked our followers on Instagram to tell us what corners of their homes brought them joy as an exercise in cultivating a deeper appreciation for our (perhaps currently chaotic) spaces. We hope you’ll take a moment to join the conversation at and, as always, if you’re finding things around your home you’d like to tweak, we’d love to hear from you.

In the meantime, stay healthy and stay home.
