Cubicles, whiteboards, glass walls, and watercoolers; there are many features of the traditional office layout that have become tropes for how we think about workspaces.
Thanks largely to a corporate lack of imagination, and laziness when it comes to design, the basic layout of offices has remained largely unchanged since the 1980s. However, we live in a vastly different world now, both technologically and professionally, and it’s time that our office spaces reflected that.
We at Redfern have been designing new office layouts and decor for over 20 years, and in that time we’ve always tried to stay at the cutting edge of design. However, with the constant fear that we might fall into the same design traps of other companies, we decided recently to take a radically new look at how we approach office design.
