As you ponder what your office needs to look like in a mobile technology world keep in mind that office design includes more than just the layout furniture and type of equipment used in the office. It also includes the policies that dictate how when and where your employees perform their work. While its important for everyone to be in the office on some days we believe this flexibility enables our staff to work more efficiently and contributes to their work/life balance. Our phone system is also set up to support a mobile workforce. We have an office line for clients to call in to but no landline office phones. Instead the phone line is a virtual one that automatically forwards calls directly to company mobile phones. This way we dont need to worry about setting up call forwarding when we arent in the office.
Either way whether the office space is more open-concept or has more private offices it is always a good idea to designate rooms for coffee breaks and office equipment to an area away from the main workstations. In this way the noise level will not bother other staff members. Lighting Having access to good artificial lighting or daylight is known to increase productivity. When people work under bad lighting conditions they can develop eyestrain headaches and general irritability. Particularly dark spaces can have a pronounced psychological effect and depress the brain. Employees should have access to their own lighting so that they can make the necessary lighting adjustments depending on the task they are carrying out. Well-designed artificial lighting will increase functionality however there is no comparison to natural daylight and this should be maximized wherever possible. Windows provide a connection to the outside world and should be used whenever the building design allows for it. Open plan layouts that employ low cubicle panels or glass panels can maximize the entry of natural light into the office. Skylights are also a good alternative when windows are not an option.
Architects and interior designers take many factors into consideration when designing interior spaces. They are well aware that the physical work environment has a direct psychological impact on people affecting their behavior emotions and thoughts. Creating a well-designed environment is just as important as building a functional one since good design boosts creativity and productivity. There are numerous factors that come into play when considering good office design: lighting temperature color noise levels furniture space layout among others. Here are a few key considerations.
