As professionals, some of us were used to working from home;
others are exploring a new way of accomplishing goals.
Remote working has become part of our present.
Backyard Gem offers an innovative approach to creating in-home working spaces.
Our backyard home office "Benitoite" has been carefully designed to create a comfortable working environment for professionals working from home. This stand-alone, one of a kind 120 square feet studio, is a true upgrade for your home working experience.
An absolute Gem!
Inspired by a contemporary style and Scandinavian aesthetic, by how the 20th-century blends comfortable warmth with clean-lined minimalism. Uniting in a way that is functional, sophisticated, and timeless.
We named it "Benitoite" as a tribute to the official California Gemstone.
The remote working concept has risen over the past decade.
Professionals today can do their job part-time or full-time outside the traditional office building, utilizing modern technology.
This trend doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. The hybrid working model imposes Result-Oriented culture management.
It is, therefore, beneficial for employers, entrepreneurs, self-employed or those who will now be asked to work from home more regularly, to look for ways to integrate remote working into their systems, identifying the best way to benefit from working and hiring remotely.
