Given that the OP's second example photo of what he's looking for shows a desk with drawers (which would be expected based on the proposed use), I don't think a torsion box is a practical solution because it would be very thick, thereby eliminating the possibility of drawers and probably interfering with knees if put at a height suitable as a computer desk.
I think it sounds fine, but make it so you can stick a leg under the corner if you decide to. He has a desktop computer and all-in-one printer set up on it, and various sports memorabilia on it and on shelving I put above and along the side. The area behind the desk walls is raw, but the stairs obviously get in the way pretty quickly behind the desk (really only have access to the right side). This will obviously leave the front left corner hanging there in mid air and I just don't know if this is going to be structurally sound. It would also require more woodworking skill than a simpler desk with support frame and braces. As long as you get those brackets in the studs, you can put alot of weight on that desk (including leaning on it very heavily) and it won't budge.
As you can see, I'll be taking at least an inch or so off the desk so that it fits the wall and as it stands now, the depth leaves about a half inch on the side wall.
Also (just FYI) the Macs and display won't be there - we are planning to mount an LCD on the wall toward the corner and mount the mini under the desk or behind the wall to keep the surface uncluttered. Of course, since this is not a full wall it may not offer the support we need no matter how the front left corner is handled - but then again, the desk itself will strengthen the wall.
A well-decorated work space has the power to inspire and rejuvenate, turning the most mundane of tasks into bearable and (dare we say) enjoyable experiences!Inspirational ideas for DIY desksIt’s therefore no surprise that a large number of DIY desk projects have emerged, from the relatively easy to the more intricate and complex. Even if you’re not in the market for a new desk, check out the home office setups below.

Note how table legs are attached to one end of the desk, while cube shelving adds support to the opposite end and middle.
