2019; Year of the Green Office?

As 2018 draws to a close, we take a key focus on refurbishment and take an insight into the green office design trends which we predict will take force in 2019.

 

Experience Driven Spaces

Experience Driven Spaces link to Green office design trends and incorporate a host of characteristics, all of which orbit the “human potential” aspects of space optimisation, the goal of which priorities the employee experience and employee well being at work. Employee focused, these spaces are aimed at developing overall wellness, cultivating happiness, community-building, and boosting morale for everyone from apprentices to top-floor executives.

Features include;

  • Massage therapy
  • Meditation areas
  • Yoga studios and walking/jogging trails
  • Rock climbing walls
  • Espresso and cocktail bars
  • Games room and virtual reality gaming spaces
  • Theatre and music stages
Nature in your Office

A very green idea of thinking about office design trends for 2019, literally! Design and evolution, is showing that the ultimate importance of implementing a creative work environment. Why not utilise plants and other green materials to connect your building with the natural world? This ‘macro trend’ for 2019, brings the emergent of plant-based, biophilic design to bring a lively unique and cultural workplace. Incorporating nature-inspired textures, as well as green walls, floor plants and decorative flowers, will move from a trendy fashion statement to a near-necessity for the office in 2019.

Research increasingly shows that connecting your employees through nature has its health and wellness benefits, with business advantages including improved employee health and attendance and job satisfaction.

Do you have a budget or limited space office? Don’t worry! We understand that smaller offers and businesses are restricted or even unable to take part in this future design thinking, due to constraints beyond control including adequate lighting and budgetary limitations.

This is where we bring you Moss Walls! The perfect green wall alternative! Demand for Moss Walls will certainly be in demand in 2019. Moss walls offer low and no -light feasibility, ease of maintenance and cost savings. Especially popular for use in brand signage and event spaces.

Enhance your office’s nature connection in 2019… Go on, go green!
