Flat House, UK, by Practice Architecture

Panels made from a mixture of lime and hemp form the textured walls of this home office, which is set inside a zero-carbon home in Cambridgeshire.

Other than a handful of vintage prints mounted on the wall, decor has been kept simple – the room is dressed with a plain black desk and wooden chair.

JB House, Thailand, by IDIN Architects

This home office in Bangkok was designed so that its owners, a young couple, could "privately keep in touch". At the centre of the room – largely used by the girlfriend, who's a writer – is a huge glass-topped desk.

It aligns with a void that looks through to the kitchen, allowing her to catch glimpses of the boyfriend, a baking enthusiast, preparing treats at the breakfast island.

London flat, UK, by Widger Architecture 

Widger Architecture extended the loft of a Walthamstow flat to create this serene study. Light-hued birch plywood covers the walls and ceiling, and has even been used to craft its built-in desk.

Black decor accents – like the reading lamp, window frame and chair – hint at the extension's dark exterior, which is clad in charred larch.
