Our office design fixated group have another article which spotlights on the historical backdrop of office design on the off chance that you need to study the advancement of the workplace, yet beneath we’ll concentrate on some key patterns we accept will end up unmistakable all through 2019.
In 2018, we saw an inexorably inventive method for utilizing already dead spaces (the third space) in the work environment, or what our group instituted as ‘the ascent of the offbeat workspace’ and a considerable lot of the patterns of 2019 expand upon this and furthermore patterns of yesterday which have turned out to be implanted into the working environment of today.
So, what would we be able to expect in 2019 and what will be the overwhelming office design patterns to anticipate? All things considered; this is what the K2 Space groupthink.
Characterizing the work environment experience
The universe of office design has without a doubt moved from a customary spotlight on usefulness and boosting headcounts to turning into an undeniably staff driven exercise, with the working environment experience now a regularly utilized expression inside the design vernacular.
The thought of work environment experience originates from the craving to make a work environment where staff feels glad, can work profitably and where they feel esteemed with the test for office designers been the means by which to make an interpretation of these points into the physical stylish and stream.
This experience is impacted by a wide scope of components from the nature of tea, espresso and bite on offer to the capacity to store bicycles and nature of showering offices yet progressively, dynamic organizations are ending up increasingly proactive with regards to characterizing the working environment experience from the point of view of staff and customers.
What this implies for office designers is that there is currently significantly the additional time spent in characterizing the detail while likewise captivating with staff on a progressively visit premise to characterize their needs and needs from the work environment, and all things considered the way toward making or improving any working environment become unmistakably increasingly all-encompassing.
This can mean hereto now things/occasions considered strange in the working environment like yoga studios, rub rooms, amusements zones and even spaces to play music is presently been presented as components that can decidedly affect the general working environment experience.
Our mantra at K2 Space is that incredible staff merit extraordinary workplaces and in a similar vein, numerous organizations currently solidly accept (and we concur) that by making extraordinary workplaces and a work environment experience to coordinate, they will draw in and hold extraordinary staff who will succeed in that condition. You can peruse increasingly about characterizing the work environment involvement in our committed piece.
Grasping the old and famous – where old meets new
This pattern isn’t totally new yet has unquestionably increased more trustworthiness as of late and we anticipate, this will keep during 2019. Considerably more than basically adding a gesture to the past through the option of old furnishings, this patterns centers around working with more established structures and spaces and infusing new life into them.
From a design point of view, it means protecting the craftsmanship incorporated with the current architecture, and for instance bringing once feeble steel, block structures, and warehouses back to life.
The K2 Space group as of late attempted to change an old mews incorporating in focal London with a work environment with a genuine distinction, where the brief was to work with and exhibit its unique highlights – you can peruse the full contextual analysis here.
We foresee an ever-increasing number of organizations will grasp this when taking a shot at more established structures with the test winding up how to adjust the ever-enduring highlights of the old structures with present day furniture and stylistic layout.
Making a design idea that offsets the old with the new can include using an assortment of completions and surfaces including harsh, worn furniture pieces and modern style brickwork and solid deck which can move easily into the future while keeping up its inalienable association with the past.
Focus Spaces – The Office Library
The K2 Space group are significant backers of giving staff a variety of workspaces where they can work contingent upon the main job, and what we are seeing increasingly more of, is a flood sought after for calm spaces where people can focus without diversion.
The issue that surfaces frequently when we connect with staff before designing another space or restoring a current office is that they think that it’s hard to amass in the workplace because of clamor levels and furthermore diversions.
In light of this, organizations are presenting not just a little case for people to work from when required or where they can serenely accept telephone calls or take an interest in video phone calls, yet in addition library style spaces designed to guarantee staff has spaces where quiet and diversion is limited.
The target of these sorts of library spaces in the working environment is clear yet the genuine test lies in guaranteeing that everyone holds fast to a reasonable arrangement of standards for that space and that all comprehend that associates working there are not to be occupied.
Different standards we’ve seen are what you would hope to see in genuine libraries – no mobiles, no talking and basically no interferences – we’ve likewise observed a ‘no earphones rule’ as they can demonstrate diverting.
As the need to think and to invest significant time to gather considerations on a project(s) increment, we hope to see increasingly more of this kind of spaces become ordinary in the cutting-edge work environment.
Shading Pop – Enliven the space
We are enormous fanatics of using shading to mirror the character of a brand inside the work environment, however, what we mean by shading pop, in respect to office design is the pattern towards utilizing solid, striking hues to breathe life into space and to actually make it ‘pop’.
Our group has utilized this to extraordinary impact in a few offices as you’ll see through the pictures underneath where yellow has been utilized to lift a breakout space at DTRE, alongside the furniture texture hues which were intentionally chosen as compliments.
The thought of shading pop is to utilize striking hues sparingly so they serve to lift the space and make intrigue – the familiar maxim of ‘Once in a while, all you need is a sprinkle of shading’ truly entireties up the thought behind shading pop, and hope to see a greater amount of this in 2019.
