Have you ever thought about your office’s layout and atmosphere and how it impacts the productivity of your team?
How well office inhabitants perform influences the success of the business as a whole, so it’s important to create a space tailored to the modern worker with a few global trends in mind.
4 Mega Trends Influencing Office Architecture and Design
1. Rapid urbanization
Mega cities are attracting people inward to denser city centres that feature the amenities and convenience not often found in rural areas. Businesses must find unique ways to make the most of the available space.
2. Changing demographics
By 2020, millennials and members of Generation Z will make up the majority of the workforce. These tech-savvy, digital natives crave instant, always-on connectivity and want to take their work anywhere without restriction, so spaces should be designed to accommodate those needs.
Regardless of industry, companies are increasingly competing on a global scale due to the rise in interconnected economies. As a result, office technology will continue to play a major role in enabling workforces to perform from anywhere throughout the world.
4. Accelerated innovation
Technology is now more deeply entrenched in our daily lives than ever before, but the majority of today’s office spaces were designed for a different era. Office spaces must be reinvented to reflect the ways that tech has changed the nature of work.
