The right office fit out can make your business stand out from competitors, attract clients and personnel, increase employee motivation and promote team work. Here are some of the current trends in office fit out designs to spark innovation in the workplace.
Open Layouts – we are seeing less of the traditional structured closed offices and a shift towards activity based workplace or ‘hot desks’ which allow staff to move around the office as they work.
Collaborative Spaces – there is shift towards designing spaces that promote creativity and teamwork between staff. The areas are designed with flexibility for specific types of interaction.
Creating a Green Office – the outdoors are coming in with a lot more natural light, fresh air, outdoor balconies, living walls and plant installations to foster a relaxed atmosphere within the workplace.
Technology Changes – with the move towards break out areas and flexible work spaces we will also see people working wirelessly with less of the bulky desktop computers on every desk.
The shift in office space design is an indicator that business is moving towards a more open, collaborative, team-oriented work environment that fosters a culture of innovation throughout our workplaces.
