Theodore Roosevelt was President when The West Wing was built in 1902. Though plans to expand the White House to accomodate more people were talked about since Thomas Jefferson, it wasn't until Roosevelt that the plans were carried out. Roosevelt hired New York architects McKim, Mead & White to build the West Wing in order provide needed office space for the president's staff.

Actually the U.S. president's residence is usually referred to as the "White House", not the "white office".
