Flexible alternatives to co-working, activity-based workspaces, unassigned seating, and ‘resimercial’.
Office design are rapidly increasing as the workplace increases the types of flexible work environments. As organizations evolve, new workspaces will need to allow for people to connect rapidly across all levels.
We are living in an environment where technology is rapidly increasing the speed and amount of knowledge we are confronted with. In order for businesses to better manage themselves, communicate, and share ideas, that information must flow outside of traditional hierarchal structures. Organizational structures are rapidly evolving, but the flow of information should not be inhibited. New workplaces are increasing in variety and types to accommodate a much broader range of function, and people are moving to the space that best supports their work.
When the Fox Architects team was was designing a new space for Brunswick, we had to consider the variety of types of work being done in their office. People needed to be able to meet in different types of spaces, for meetings that range from casual to formal. Employees also wanted have the option to be able to concentrate in quiet areas or collaborate in open areas. This resulted in a variety of options that offer increased flexibility.
