Imagine a classroom: a teacher’s desk, a whiteboard, thirty student desks and chairs, and windows that overlook the quad. It is all the same furnishings that every other classroom has, but for an architecture student at the University of Colorado, something is different.
There is certainly a growing parallel between home and office design, partly due to the fact that fewer people now work a typical 9-5 day. Many people work beyond their contractual hours and employers are keen to provide a space in which their staff can feel comfortable, relaxed and ultimately more productive.
Businesses worldwide are marching into the future, reinventing the commonly held perceptions of office space. The conventional workspace is being phased out in favour of connected spaces that encourage innovation and collaboration while still championing personal identity.
Workplace design has a huge impact on increasing productivity and happiness at work.
Offices need to be designed for people.
