Continuing from Those Effective Interiors at a Workplace
TIP for the Meeting Space — If the room is used for internal meetings, create enough solid walls for capturing brainstorms on. If the room is client-facing, subtly add brand-connecting paintings, something that will start a conversation. And always make sure the room is equipped for all your presentation needs.
Words and paintings
Encourage the use of text on glass and walls to label a place within the office. This generates movement, and creates social hubs. Think how we act within a library compared to a canteen – our surroundings really impact our behaviours. So using text on walls signals the expected behaviour for the area e.g. a quiet working space or a chatty networking hub.
TIP — Explore the impact signposting different areas in your workspace can have.
Location. Location. Location.
Location can also tell a story. Design the office to reflect what motivates the people; what inspires them to create, work and play. The innovative design creates an effective workspace.
No matter what your budget or space you can easily create a visual wow factor and create a good first impression.
