In the hills of Los Angeles, two designers inhabit a modern bohemia.

The ongoing pandemic has completely changed every single aspect of our lives—from how we communicate with friends and family to how we travel and, of course, how, or rather where, we work. Having a dedicated home office has become a must and many people are looking for creative ways to add an additional room to their homes without going through costly and time-consuming renovations.

This is exactly what inspired Estonian brothers Andreas and Jaak Tiik to create their ÖÖD Home office—an easy-to-assemble prefabricated house that can be shipped anywhere in the world.

The design’s most striking feature is of course its mirrored facade that consists of double-layer insulated glass units with a reflective coating.

“Our designers created the mirror house to enable a harmonious combination between tiny living surrounded by playful landscapes. The house serves as a modern stand-alone oasis among the scenery. It's not an intruding nor disturbing construction in nature—it blends in with the surroundings,” said Kristi Kivilaid of ÖÖD House.

The multi-functional space has an area of about 100 square feet and features natural stone-like flooring and engineered oak walls—one at the rear and one at the side. The floor-to-ceiling mirrored glass windows reflect almost all of the direct sunlight which means even if it’s a particularly sunny day out, you could still work comfortably inside without being bothered by glare.

The space is big enough to fit a desk with a chair, a file cabinet, and even a small sofa. You could also have shelves installed on one of the wood walls if you need additional storage space. There is also a small bench attached to the exterior of the sidewall for when you need to take a break from work.

The ÖÖD Home office comes with a price tag of about $22,000 (€19,900). The company is currently working with Amazon to make it available there in the next week or so which means you could soon be able to purchase it with a single click.
