Many of the most dynamic companies are applying aggressive innovation when designing cool office spaces. Business leaders know that surroundings affect workers’ psyche and that well-curated workspaces get the best out of their workforce. The right color scheme, layout, or tone can increase productivity, energy and creativity, which can lead to a more rosy-looking balance sheet.
One design style won’t work for every company. Luckily there are various types of cool office spaces to choose from that can evoke emotions that matches a company’s personality.
Here are some cool office spaces worldwide that are already reaping their benefits.
Sustainability: More and more companies are reflecting their eco-friendly ethos in their office space design. Melinda Delst Interior Design designed the Fairphone company’s head office in Amsterdam with an open plan, beautiful views, and a variety of recycled and environmentally friendly materials like reclaimed wood and glass that form cube-shaped meeting areas.
Henegan Peng designed Airbnb‘s beautiful offices in Dublin in an arrangement of nooks and pods with glass walls all bordered with cork, giving the space a renewable, chic feel. Many other companies are incorporating foliage directly into office designs. The company, Loft, installed a green garden atop a glass box meeting room in their Rotterdam office, which is accessible by a staircase leading to the office’s exterior.
