Place matters because people matter. The places where we come together need to provide choice and control over where and how we work. They need to respect and reflect who we are as individuals, teams and organizations.
How We Approach Workplace Design
Today’s workspaces need an ecosystem of spaces designed to adapt and evolve over time, optimizing real estate while fostering higher levels of employee engagement. When we design spaces with the needs of people in mind and with a holistic perspective of technology and space, we can help people achieve more while having a much better experience at work.
Ecosystem of Spaces
An effective and evolving ecosystem of spaces is accomplished through the intentional combination of five spatial zones, designed to accommodate and anticipate changing organizational and employee needs.
The size, ratio and adjacency of each zone should be tailored to match both your business objectives and cultural expectations. The result is a flexible workplace design that can adapt and evolve over time.
