Reimagining the Office Interior Design after Working from Home
What will the company office look like after COVID-19, or at least as workers start to trickle back to the office? Some are saying that it will look similar to the home office interior design selections that many people chose when working from home. But, one thing is for sure, in the interest of protecting its employees, the interior designs of corporate offices will have significant changes. Home office accessories and home office furniture will play key roles in the redesigning of the office just as it plays major roles in home offices. With the pandemic still raging, but with economies slowly opening up, and companies trying to find a semblance of normalcy, these three fundamental changes will define the office design even post-COVID-19.
Physical distancing will be the main focus of offices. This means that organizations need to rethink the workplace and consider ways to de-densify offices. While staggered shifts and flexible work policies will be deemed to keep offices less dense, necessary changes such as having only two people work from a long table, or implementing enclosed cubicles will need to be implemented. Companies of all sizes will need more space even with fewer workers in them. They may need more floors or expand to satellite branches in hubs and co-working spaces. The concept of a single large company headquarters may become obsolete.
Social distancing will mean less people at a conference table during a meeting or more conference tables at different locations or floors, with meetings using video platforms. Other forms of communications will be suggested, such as phone calls, instant messaging, and emails, for less important meetings. Technology will play more important roles in meetings in contrast to face-to-face conferences only several months ago.
Incorporating More Health Protocols
Every office, regardless of size, needs to level up several levels higher to protect workers. Utility and cleaning services will not only clean up the office after work but will need to disinfect thoroughly. Toilets, barriers, door knobs/bars, bannisters, elevators, etc. will need extra attention during disinfection. Since there may only be a single pantry per floor, this needs to be disinfected thoroughly and continuously.
