Great ideas emerge out of the best of environments. An ideal workplace should create a fertile environment which will drive creativity and productivity. That is why top organisations like Google, Apple, Amazon emphasize having upbeat, trendy and comfortable offices. Here’s a list of innovative designs that convert your typical office into an employee-friendly workplace.
1. Activity-Oriented Space Allocation
Different tasks require different approaches. Some tasks demand a few minutes of intense creativity, some need hours of troubleshooting while others want the entire team to pitch in. Workspaces can have various installations that assist groups or individuals to focus on their tasks.
2. Change- The Only Constant
An important attribute of a modern, functional workplace is flexibility. Depending on the needs, a meeting area can be converted into a shared workspace. These will have easily movable chairs, desks and tables to instantly change the look of the space. Instant transformation is the need of the hour.
3. The Beauty of Nature
More and more workplaces are incorporating natural elements. It is only human to be attracted to places of nature and natural beauty. Installing glass panels, indoor fountains, artificial mini ponds, a natural hedge or a wall of plant-covered slats impart an organic and wholesome characteristic.
4. A Home Away from Home
Many offices offer the comfort of home with personalized attributes dotting the work area. Couches, sofas, dining tables, swings, ping pong table etc. help employees attune to their work. Besides comfort, these spaces offer leisure and recreational breaks, when needed.
5. Keeping it Raw with the Industrial Look
Bare walls with exposed brickwork, unshielded ducts and ventilation, exposed pipes and beams give a crude yet refined look. The absence of partitions, high ceiling and overhanging lights confer a sense of spaciousness.
