Bringing work and home together with Tata Steel

26 March 2013 No Comment

Working from home is something we all dream about, but the reality is often a letdown. Stuffed into the corner of a lounge, or hiding inside a cluttered spare room – creating a serene yet professional at-home working environment has always been a challenge.

But Lars Courage of Courage Architects changed all that when he decided to build his own combined home and office in Apeldoorn in the Netherlands.

No chance of a fade to grey for this home office building

Constructed entirely out of steel and glass, the aptly named ‘House and Office Courage’ offers a solution to ‘home working’ like never before.

And when it came to choosing materials, Courage approached Tata Steel with a clear brief – he wanted the highest quality black steel cladding for the roof and walls – something that would avoid the fading effects of direct sunlight while retaining its colour and high quality gloss finish.

Using Colorcoat HPS200® Ultra in black, which has a superior UV resistance; an embossed surface that minimises the entrapment of dirt and the additional bonus of a 40-year guarantee, there is certainly no risk of Courage’s design losing its sleek, industrial design.

Sleek, industrial design that effortlessly brings together home and work

One of four ‘House and Office’ buildings, Courage’s new base shows how traditional industrial materials and construction methods can be combined to create a truly unique structure – one that effortlessly brings together home and work, all under one roof.
