Inspiration - The Oval Office

Arguably the most recognizable office in the world, the oval office represents the epicenter of world power, yet has an elegant, welcoming feel.  Sitting at the "head" of the room is a magnificent desk, framed by the large windows behind.  An inviting sitting area in the foreground  provides a venue for more intimate conversations.

What mega mansion would be complete without its own oval office?

I have begun work on the "business center" of the home.  As opposed to the white house's "west wing," the business center in this mega-mansion occupies a large part of the "east wing" (ground floor). 

The crowning glory of the business center will be the mansion's very own "oval office," which lies outside a generous reception hall.  The office will have its own private bathroom.  Doors lead to a private terrace, perfect for entertaining business guests.  There is a passage way (containing a wet bar) leading from the office to a large, fully equipped conference room, complete with motorized projection screen to deliver multimedia presentations. 

"Public" lavatories and an informal lounge finish off the business suite.

The nearby east wing staircase will allow access to entertainment features on the lower level (as well as the catering kitchen) and the guest suites on the upper floor.  Adjacent to the business suite on the ground floor is a large apartment suite suitable for the most distinguished of business guests.

I am still finalizing the design.  Preliminary sketches will come soon!  Stay tuned!

As always, comments are more than welcome!

Do you have the floor plans for the home yet? If so, please post them! I would love to see what the layout is for the home, and it helps see the connections between the different rooms.

There has been some interest in obtaining floor plans for the home.

I have not been posting floor plans of the home for two main reasons:

1. As I am in the design process, the floor plans change considerably and become "outdated" very fast.

2. It would ruin the surprise!

Once the project is complete I will be making the plans available, so subscribe for updates and check back frequently!
