Each office has its own unique purpose and the best office designs are focused on the people using them and enhancing their productivity. Your office should be a representation of your brand and certain design styles have become synonymous with different sectors. The workplace is made up of a diverse network of individuals and businesses should benefit from recognising and catering for the diverse requirements of personality types and the needs of different departments
But what does your office design say about your company?
The following are 5 examples of different design styles and what they say about the client’s brand, identity and company culture
- Modern Office Design- Capital Properties – Tower 12 Spinningfields
High-end finishes and privacy are a key requirement for this Property Management Company – lots of meeting rooms and private offices create a more traditional workplace environment. The combination of glass and bright graphics creates a professional atmosphere, the spaces are individual and have full AV facilities with flexible lighting and comfortable seating by Select Interiors Ltd. This kind of work space benefits from staff initiative with large breakout space and drinks / entertainment area housed within the reception
Please see the short film example of a design & fit out as described above
2. Industrial Office Design –Hello – Allied London in St John’s Quarter
More companies are embracing the industrial style and challenging the traditional conventions of the workplace. Embracing the raw characteristics of the architecture like polished concrete flooring and exposed services. The stripped back aesthetic and industrial metal fixtures are features that reflect the energetic brand that wanted to move away from traditional layouts and design. It enabled greater collaboration and encouraged innovation within an open, collaborative workplace as illustrated by the mobile bespoke work benches
3. Scandinavian Office Design – Rapport in the Northern Quarter
