Workspace Design & Construction: integrated vs separate

I have been designing and constructing workplaces since the early 90's, at a time when a D&C model was unfashionable, workplace design usually consisted of lots of offices and meeting rooms, open plan was nearly non-existent and the Architect reigned supreme! The changes that have occurred over the last 20-odd years are significant.

Own your throne: don’t ignore the humble office chair

We sit a lot. For most people - especially those who work in offices - most of our waking hours are spent seated.

Modern Interior Office Design Is About Innovation and Easy Style

Today offices have literally “broken up” the traditional office model. The days when places of work was characteristically cubicle with staff enclosed in banal white walls and white fluorescent lights, has had its day. Graphical wallpapers have replaced crisp white walls. Modern interior design for offices has changed dramatically. Ergonomic appeal is the call of the day. Thanks to large successful corporations who fashioned their offices on the premise that “creative work environments energize ...

Law Office Design Trends

Not long ago, lawyers used to work in isolated, cluttered and hard-wired offices. However, the things have changed and a new generation of attorneys has started to look for more flexible office settings that offer the latest advancements in aesthetics, ergonomics and technology. Recent law office design trends allow these professionals to redesign their old, spacious offices to function as multipurpose rooms that offer impressive technological capabilities.
