The vast majority of us spend more time working during the week than doing any other type of activity. In offices, we're often sat in the same place, at the same desk and on the same chair – when coupled with an office design that is dull and uninspiring, is it really a surprise when there are times when we feel tired and unmotivated at work?
It's for that exact reason why so many businesses are now investing a lot of thinking into re-imagining their office design in London. By producing an environment that is comfortable, inspiring and allows for easy access to tools and technology for workers to go about their jobs, it's no surprise the end result is a vast rise in productivity and quality of work.
One of the most noticeable trends in office design throughout the last decade has been that of coworking. To put it simply, coworking is an approach to office design that sees a single space used by people who work for themselves, different employers or indeed, for the same company (but in differing departments). The aim is for everyone to share equipment, ideas and knowledge with one of the major benefits being that the office provides a cost-effective working space for everyone. Not only that, but coworking is also designed to encourage interaction and to create a community inside the office space, further increasing the levels of productivity and quality of work.
With many offices not running to their full capacities and with high rents, long leases – even unfavourable locations – causing issues for modern businesses, using coworking has helped many small and medium-sized operations to attain a workplace that is cost-effective and helps their workforce to be more productive simply by being present in a close, collaborative environment.
The traditional office design is of course classically referred to as a 'cubicle environment', which would see staff tucked away in their own surroundings. But there's more to traditional office design than just locking away people in cubicles for 8 hours a day – traditional office design requires that everything present in the space provided has to conform to the constraints of the office design. Living as we do in an era that requires flexibility in terms of technology and working practices, the office design of today should conform to the needs and abilities of everyone present, not to the traditional design that dictates how we work. Changing and adapting to the working needs of the workforce is something that modern office design can do, whereas traditional office design cannot.
