Collaborative Office has been designing functional, modern offices for years – and we have learned a thing or two during that time. Companies that work with us are forward-thinking and ready to take their business to the next level. We partner with business owners to create an office that not only meets their needs but also speaks to their brand and company culture. How can good office space design impact your business success?
Office Space Design Sets The Tone
According to Forbes magazine, a high-quality workplace leads to better employee wellbeing. When your employees have a calm and healthy environment, they can be more productive – which benefits everyone. Time and time again, studies show that intentional office design that incorporates natural lighting, efficient workflow, and ergonomic workstations produces happier employees. Especially in customer-facing settings, like retail or medical offices, this effect also trickles down into increased sales. As experts in office space design across a wide range of industries, we are able to identify key areas of your existing layout that need improvement. From there, we develop a space plan with furniture choices that transform your office into the ideal workplace.
Your Brand Tells A Story
When people walk into your space, what will be their first impression? Does your workplace match your company culture and how you do business? If not, you could be missing out on great new hires as well as customers. Office design isn’t just about desks and chairs, it’s about creating a cohesive environment that tells your story from the moment you walk in. If your reception area is a hodgepodge of cast-off chairs, that is a great place to start. Consider modular, easy to clean, and durable furniture like the River series. These interlocking pieces come in a variety of configurations and easily serve as both a place to lounge and a place to collaborate.
Open Plan or Cubicle?
This question appears to be always top of mind when it comes to office design, and there are no right or wrong answers. For most companies, it will be a matter of preference and how they operate on a day-to-day basis. Overall, we see a trend towards a mix. Some areas of the office are designed for privacy and others for team meetings. Fortunately, office furniture manufacturers also picked up on this trend. Commercial office furniture is more versatile than ever, with collections that create both private nooks and open-plan layouts. Modern cubicles blend seamlessly into collaborative benching. Material combinations are fresh, like premium wood veneer and metal and clear or frosted glass partitions.
