Today's workplace environments have evolved greatly from the days of cubicles and fluorescent lighting. Interscape Commercial Environments keeps up with the current trends of workplace design and we bring them to our showroom and set forth to our clients' needs and projects. Here are a few ideas that inspire us with workplace design:
Nature has a great impact on humans whether you are at home or in a business setting. Sunlight, fresh air and natural surroundings positively affect peoples' sense of well being and happiness. Biophilic design was introduced to incorporate natural materials, plant-life and nature views into the workplace environment. And this goes beyond corporate, as it has been researched that hospital patients with a window overlooking nature have quicker recoveries than a view with a wall or no window at all.
Social/Collaborative Settings are now being incorporated in the workplace and educational environments. Sharing ideas together with other colleagues helps our minds
and brings new ideas to the table. From collaborative work tables to in-house cafes, these social settings allow people to interact, share and get inspired.
We all know that exercise is vital to keep us physically fit and improves our mental functioning. Health/Activity is definitely inspiring the workplace with incorporating height adjustable work tables and surfaces in commercial, healthcare and education markets alike. The introduction to the WELL Building Standard is the leading tool for advancing health and well-being in buildings globally; measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and well-being, through air, water nourishment, light fitness, comfort and mind.
Where do you go to be inspired? Different markets will appeal to different spaces and needs but combinations of these above inspirations (nature, collaborative and health) will make for a great environment that will support your company's culture.
