Frequently asked questions

Why does office design matter?

Although it may not be obvious, office design has always played a central part in the success of an organisation in terms of ROI, productivity, innovation, sustainability, employee satisfaction, and many other areas.

We view office design as a multi-layered interaction between creative and technical aspects that feed into the behaviour and performance of an organisation. From the level of lighting that allows your workforce to maintain focus throughout the day, to the layout of your office that facilitates teamwork, office design can make or break your business.

How does office design affect productivity?

In a global survey conducted by Area, ‘environment’ was one of the top four factors contributing to company performance. There are many factors in office design that affect productivity, including furniture, lighting quality, colour scheme, layout and zoning.

Ultimately, supporting the wellbeing of the people using the space gives them the power to reach their potential. That’s why we always focus on human-centric design.

How can we design for a hybrid working environment?

The workplace will never be the same following our recovery from the global pandemic. The office will no longer be the default location for working. Coworking spaces become more prominent as companies adopt different hybrid working models, and remote working is more widespread than ever before.

We’ve learned a lot from this new way of working and use our learnings to optimise the hybrid working environment. Taking on the feedback of your workforce is vital in understanding how to provide them autonomy and control over where they feel they are most productive. We think outside the box to develop solutions that put people, performance, safety, and connectivity first — giving your team the opportunities they want and need to contribute effectively.

How can office designs adapt to a post-COVID-19 working world?

With the turn of 2020 and the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the stakes were raised on creating practical workplace experiences to adapt to and overcome the temporary and permanent changes we faced.

Our workplace strategy team has chartered a path to a new people-centric agenda for health and wellness in the workplace. We focused our designs even more on wellbeing to attain three goals: reducing stress, boosting creativity, and projecting a sense of culture and belonging in the new normal.

Can sustainability be incorporated into our new office design?

We’re constantly switched on to opportunities for sustainability. It’s one of the drivers and essential aspects within the design framework of each of our projects, not only when it’s our client’s primary objective.

This is one of the reasons our clients love our perspective and guidance on shifting towards a more sustainable way of working. Sustainability can’t be an afterthought anymore; it must be as ingrained in the fabric of your office design as it is in the minds of your employees.
