Isn't home office a corporate lingo, too..
The term home office typically refers to (in my mind) a room, often a bedroom that has been converted into a "proper" office that is used by someone who runs a business from their home on an ongoing basis. Some of these people, who tend to go a bit stir crazy if they do not have enough people contact, have migrated towards "co-working" arrangements where they rent a seat in an office to work from. This has been a growing sector in the last few years.

The current "temporary" situation has people working on the kitchen or dining room table or other spot where they can set up their office or personal laptop to connect to the Internet and answer emails, do video calls etc. in an effort to keep projects and the company moving.
