Embracing the character of bare construction elements, builder Rob Wyman creates a new home office that is the perfect amalgam—both raw and refined.

“I wanted to celebrate what we do as contractors,” says builder Rob Wyman, describing the office he created for RL Wyman Design & Create in his family’s new St. George home. There, he celebrated the elements of his trade by leaving structural components exposed, from ductwork and insulation to wiring and framing. “These are typically covered up during the course of construction,” he says.

To boost the concept, he also plastered the walls to resemble formed concrete and crafted desks and conference tables out of floor trusses. House West Design threw in a leopard-patterned rug, relaxed furnishings and playful art to “deliver a level of fun,” says designer Yvonne Christensen. The workspace works for Wyman. “As a contractor, it’s one of my favorite places in the home,” he says. “It’s raw and unfinished but feels complete and polished.”
