New structures shake up familiar patterns and open doors to the unforeseen. We have time to re-evaluate how and where would we live and how would we work. Asun Homes Vol. 4 is dedicated to private spaces that offer an inspiring, multi-purpose backdrop for living and working. Captured on the pages, you will find contemporary abodes that offer a comfortable space to work as well as studio homes blurring the lines between work and leisure time.
