Reimagining the office and how we work
The world is currently experiencing unprecedented changes and challenges, with working from home highlighting opportunities, limitations, and possible implications for the future. In tandem, this shift has generated a societal shift in values, while offering more clarity on the benefits—and indeed the necessity—of physical, communal spaces that bring people together to live, work and play.
As restrictions begin to lift, and life begins transitioning back into the physical workplace, we can re-envision our offices to reflect these societal shifts and the evolving convergence of life into less siloed spaces. This requires both a pragmatic and personal approach, while also ensuring safety, optimising wellness, and promoting sustainability.
Sheppard Robson and ID:SR are passionate about understanding this transition, with the below research, guidelines, case-studies and commentary highlighting how we envision designing the workplaces of the future.
It’s so tempting to make bold claims about revolutions in the office, but I think we are more likely to see accelerated evolution of the themes we were seeing in the workplace before the pandemic – flexibility and a choice of how and where to work.
