We start office design by studying the client’s working methods and office culture; then we find the correct office space solution to support the needs. When we plan the functionality of the premises, we take into consideration room acoustics, lighting and work ergonomics. We have the tools and design experience to find the best office solution for you. Our state-of-the-art 3D visualization brings the space to life early in the design process, before the physical office change is implemented.
What is a good office space like?
A well functioning and flexible office space is an investment that can save you money. It is a space that is adaptable, durable and timeless.
There is no idle space on the premises and every square meter is effectively utilized, taking into account the needs of the users and their work tasks. What matters is the right number of different work and meeting spaces, that are properly sized for different functions and ways of working.
The office space is not designed for a specific number of people, and it also allows for changes: hiring new employees or reducing staff.
The office space is, above all, designed for the company and the way its staff works. For some companies, the right space solution means a multi-room office and for others, a traditional room office.
The premises are adventurous, cozy, inspiring and, above all, look like the company they were designed for. The look and feel also withstands time as it is not tied to any particular trend. The premises create a sense of community while providing areas for peaceful work. It attracts employees and creates a positive employer image.
Examples of our design services
In activity-based office, employees have the opportunity to choose the most appropriate area and workstation for their own work. There are zones where one can work undisturbed, zones for working with a group of people and quiet spaces where one can make calls without disturbing others, to name a few. Opportunities for different departments to co-operate are enhanced, and community building is strengthened in activity-based offices. Flexible facilities support the company’s operations in different situations. An activity-based office can be fashioned into home or zone solution, or be a suitable compilation of different space solutions.
For some companies, the most effective solution may be a traditional office where employees work alone or together in separate rooms. This solution works well when the staff’s job description is, for example, very self-contained and usually involves one-on-one tasks that require concentration, confidentiality, and communication on the phone.
Needs Assessment Services
With our Needs Assessment Services, you can quickly and inexpensively find out which workspaces would work best for your company. Needs assessment services are a good way to get started, for example, in situations where:
- The current facilities no longer fully support the needs and they need to be updated in some way
- The use of space must be made more efficient in order to reduce costs
- The spatial needs have changed with the change in the number of staff
- The costs and schedules of the change of premises must be determined
- The lease is about to expire and there is a desire to explore new business premise options
We also offer our customers total solutions, where we map out which business premises are optimal for the company, look for business premises alternatives, help with lease negotiations, make work environment plans and 3D images of the new premises, and train employees to use new premises and for the change of workplace culture. In addition, we help with change communication planning, relocation, and furniture acquisition, if necessary. A company can focus on its own business and rely on our expertise to successfully bring about change.
Conceptualization is a tool that can be utilized to communicate the desired core message clearly and manage various space solutions so that they are added, modified, and maintained systematically.
Conceptualization can be utilized, for example, when;
- implementing the client’s visual identity on the premises
- implementing a consistent customer experience across the client’s various restaurant spaces
- updating a client’s existing office concept to better support their desired new ways of working
- developing and deploying a comprehensive facility change to different locations
