The world of work brings almost constant change. Recent history has seen more and more people working outside of the office due to developments in technology that allow people to work from home. A report from architects Gensler suggests that face-to-face interaction is drawing workers back to the office in droves. This is likely to have an effect on the way that offices are designed, especially in cities. Cities have always been the driving force of modern industry, but now more than ever, people are moving towards cities for job opportunities.
So why are people coming back to the office? In many studies there have been interesting results when staff have been given the option to work from home. This study conducted in China showed that even though staff were more productive, made more money and saved the company money by working at home, many of the test subjects decided to go back to the office at the end of the study – the reasoning? It was posited that factors such as social isolation and a reduction in promotion opportunities(the out of sight out of mind theory) helped them make the decision. The moral of this story? That the office environment is indeed a benefit for many staff,particularly those who enjoy social interaction with their colleagues. This helps us to see that the inclusion of a social element in office design can be highly useful in helping to improve morale, if not to necessarily maximise productivity gains.
So how do you turn this information into an ideal office environment? That’s a good question. Only you know your business, but we can help you to uncover the options that can help to improve morale and productivity, while also producing an aesthetically pleasing and useful office space. The new philosophy of people centred design helps us to put your staff at the centre of the design process. The introduction of leisure areas such as break rooms and kitchens can help to enhance the social cohesion of your staff.We can also help to make the office experience better with smart office design that can produce anything from traditional cubes to a fully open plan workspace. Whatever your team needs, Spaceway can deliver it.
Office design is clearly important to your staff, they spend a large proportion of their waking hours there. By centering the design philosophy of your office on the needs of your people, we can help to create harmony and cohesion in your team. This can help to promote collaboration and productivity increases that can drive your business forward.

We are delighted with the finished product. The space has been turned into an exceptional working environment, which will serve us well for years to come
It’s no good having just an empty industrial building you need a concept for space, a design, an infrastructure and someone to build it. Designing something like this from scratch with someone who’s willing to invest in your ideas, Spaceway is your perfect partner.
The office fit out is superbly finished to the highest standards and beyond our expectations.
“I was so happy I did not get bothered throughout the extensive works and that a strict timetable was completed flawlessly. Fantastic experience all round.”
The project was challenging to say the least with the removal of 280 workstations and fitting of 400 new ones, along with collaboration areas and 400 bespoke lockers over two weekends, but Spaceway managed to complete this along with office refurbishment works on time and to an excellent standard.
