Human-Centric Workspace for Privacy, Flexibility, and Well-Being
“Human-based office” is a flexible workspace strategy where employees are at the centre. It’s a new alternative to open office, where the setting design prioritises human beings, wellness, and flexibility. They can adjust their working environment based on their specific mood, need, and preference. It allows them to choose from a variety of settings to ease and support the nature of work they’re doing.
Consequently, it reinforced structural changes, turning the traditional office landscapes into hubs for connection, concentration, and spaces to support a wide range of work styles. It is envisioned to be functional, strategic, and aesthetically pleasing: a shift from individual to flexible-shared spaces allocating productivity-boosting collaboration spaces. The employee can move freely around the office to find the perfect working spot.
As a result, the interior needs to serve multiple purposes with adaptable furniture and design elements, for a variety of functions. Preferably, the furniture should be non-porous with antimicrobial surfaces that’s easy to clean to assure health and hygiene. It should also bring different accents to feature different moods, with colours are a powerful tool to get creative.
With an increasing number of people having bad experience with open-plan office, due to high density and noise distractions, it is important to take acoustics as the centre of your design. This means that, even though the office needs to ease collaboration, we need to first and foremost emphasise privacy.
