Architect Combines Home and Workspace

Alan Cohen, architect, took a regular house and combined a unique space where he and his partner live and work, and now they are surrounded by a community.


Their home isn’t small but their story is still one of simplifying… They both eliminated their need of using vehicles everyday by combining their work space within their home as well as being in close proximity to everywhere they go.

They love it not just because the commute is gone but they are also within walking or bicycling distance from just about anywhere they would want to go.

Alan’s office is just a doorway into a 1050 square foot area. They share this space (Alan is an architect and his partner an artist).

The living space is 1730 square feet (down from 3000 square feet previously) but they have an architect office and an artist studio within.

    Thank you Mr. Cresswell for bringing Oshatz’s work and wbetise to my attention. His philosophy is extremely intriguing to me, and I can very clearly see how it is translated into forms. As I forage into my first few years of Architecture school, developing my design ideas and how I view the world is very important to me, and your blog has been a tremendous help toward that purpose.I am interested in more design philosophy if you know of some beyond your blog’s and business site’s links (thank you for showing me all of those as well.)
