“Having worked from my bedroom in isolation for a few years, I have learned two very important things. 1. Physically separating work and home allows your mind to decompress and refocus. Always being ‘ON’ is mentally taxing. 2. Social interaction is infinitely important to healthy growth. Especially when you are in your mid 20′s. So here is how I would handle a live/work concept:
My ideal live/work situation is based on community, shared spaces and a distinct separation between home and work. In this campus, one building is devoted to homes and one building is devoted to businesses both retail and office. Both buildings have shared roof decks and backyards to encourage gatherings. The idea is to rent both apartments and work spaces to people as a package. And ideally these are independent businesses that foster local communities.
