There are perks in bring work home. Life can be even easier at times when you work from home entirely! Of course, on the downside of things, the line between work and personal life might be quickly blurred. It makes sense to have an office space that is detached from your primary living area and homeowners are discovering its many benefits as they explore the world of backyard offices. Adding sensationally to this ever-growing and inspirational collection is the Butterfly Studio in Westport, Connecticut. Its design feels abstract and futuristic to the untrained eye. Yet, it is evolution and bio-mimicry that help shape this awesome office.

Private studio in the backyard with concrete, wood and glass walls

Designed by Valerie Schweitzer Architects, stucco and wood walls along with cleverly placed glass sections imitate the form of a butterfly’s closed wings to create this exquisite and private office in the garden. It is more of an art studio than a modern office with the glass roof supported by a metallic structure ushering in much more than just natural light. Colors change throughout the day as the sun changes its position and at night, the star-studded sky is your companion. Connecting with nature without sacrificing privacy or compromising on acoustics, this majestic art studio is one of a kind.
