I have ALWAYS wanted a command center place like this in my home. I can't wait to be homeowners so we can do this! I like the way it is simultaneously a part of the action by being located near the kitchen or what have you, but it is still somewhat isolated and provides some privacy. It would be a good place to keep the "family computer," for the kids to use under our supervision.

Home office: Perhaps the full-wall shelving unit goes on the wall between the new office and current office? Then the window wall is left without built-ins around the window and the adjoining wall is open for artwork. It would look bigger.
