Can you have a great day at the office everyday? This video illustrates how we design for the workplace of the future, through a mix of current trends and timeless ideas. The workplace should be designed around the user and enhance individual experiences there by heightening positivity, innovation and creativity in the office. This exploration extends to the macro scale by implementing these ideas to first the floor plate and then the office building as a whole. The office of the future should be more than just a place to work, it should be a place of collaboration whether intended, impromptu or otherwise, and the building should respond to the life inside it.
