Office Space Planning

Mull Over the Design

Every office space needs to have an aesthetically pleasing yet practical space. The fusion of these two can bring about a great mood for the business, increasing productivity in the process.

The overall design will also become the company’s brand or identity, as well as a reflection of the business’ passion. The design is a key element in the success of the business yet it can sometimes be ignored.

The best space plan is one that has effectively allocated zones for separate groups with different working practices. Each team must have an easy access with all other teams and the resources.

The communal breakout area is becoming popular, as this is a place where various departments meet up and work in a comfortable and less structured setting. This is especially popular among the creative professions.

Executive offices are usually situated along the edge. This is a great way to utilize window space. The rest of the workforce is situated right in the middle – at least this is the traditional setting.

More and more designers are now looking into this kind of plan and whether it is really effective for the employees’ well-being. Executives are often away on meetings anyway so it makes more sense if their offices are relocated in the middle while the employees get a dose of sunshine along the edge. This window space utilization provides a potential in the creation of better working moods, thus, increasing worker output.

The open plan concept has been proven to improve the flow of communication in many offices. This means that even when subjected to heavy foot traffic, the work areas must still have ample distance from the traffic.

Certain systems may be optional such as a music system but where it is seen to improve the productivity, then it helps to set up one. Music can be soothing and there are many people who can work better when there is music playing in the background.

Furniture Layout Counts

Quality furniture is also important so it is best that the office pieces are purchased from a reputable company, one that specializes in supplying office furniture. Furniture layout must be designed in a manner that the mind and the body remain flexible.

Teams grow over time so a modular design is one of the concepts that can accommodate the office’s growing needs. Find comfortable seating, set up reliable acoustics, cable management, apply the best color and find durable office furniture. These may be separate factors but they are all important pieces on that big puzzle called the office setting.
