AIT 10.2021 Office Buildings – What comes after the home office?
Even the last holidaymakers will return to their workplaces, probably even to their real ones. Many are looking forward to seeing their colleagues and returning to their traditional desks, others have become accustomed to working in a home office and no longer want to miss the freedoms it offers. Employers have to master this balancing act: Allow new freedoms without losing identity or loyalty to the company. a question – Corona has redefined the future of work! Professor Mark Phillips and Angelika Donhauser have been researching this at Coburg University of Applied Sciences and share their findings with us in their article “The Third Place”. One important finding has already taken place: If office work, then in an environment that meets employees with empathy and offers plenty of free space for communication, interaction and relaxation. During our research for outstanding office projects, we discovered that there are already realised examples of this and show how workplaces can be attractive for employees again. Plants play a big role – textiles, colours, but also identity-creating, very individual conversion projects.
