The ultra-professional space
Whether a business deals in finances, legality or any other industry that requires a degree of ultra-professionalism, concentration is paramount. This is why many firms favoured the 'cubicle desk' setups that sealed off workers from each other; something that was eventually deemed to negatively affect their mood and general mental wellbeing,which was likely to seep into the work they produced. The creation of open plan setups provided a medium; whilst the barriers were torn down, giving employees more to look at (and be inspired by) than walls of a cubicle, the placement of dividers helped to block out any immediate distractions, allowing them to concentrate on their work.
Today, as shared desk spaces are becoming more commonplace, things like desk booking systems are becoming popular for providing variation to an employee's day-to-day work cycle, giving them the option to sit where they want. This helps to encourage cross-pollination between each department, improving the company culture and creating a drive to succeed.
Many firms will be centred on their clients and as such, will need to have a space that is able to represent the business in a positive light, making a profound first impression.This means that having salient client-facing areas is vital; the reception and meeting rooms are such areas that need to be impactful and able to stress the professionalism of the business. Including unique branding within the interiors will also provide any visitors with an impressive experience of the business they're dealing with too.
