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.
Most companies pay a lot of attention to the design of their websites marketing collateral logos and other marketing tools. And rightfully so as professionally designed marketing materials are essential for attracting new clients and growing the business. But what about your office? Todays work environment is undergoing radical change. And unless you design your office accordingly you may not be able to keep up with the evolving needs of clients or your employees. About two decades ago the Internet began transforming our work world by making access to information instantaneous and ubiquitous. Now new mobile technologies are kicking that transformation into high gear. With the emergence of smart phones tablets and powerful data-sharing platforms people can now work virtually anywhere with anyone at any time. As a result the workplace of the future will be less centralized more mobile and far more flexible than todays traditional offices.
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.
