Commercial space is a battleground. It’s a battle between ‘roundy’ humans and ‘squarey’ objects. Win the battle with space-pod, the commercial fit out specialists!
Humans are not square in shape, however most pieces of paper, books, desks, cupboards, and computers have a good deal of square edges and tend to end up, well squarish!
If our office space only needed objects, ‘squary’ offices would be a great solution. Unfortunately there are normally lots of humans and not only are they ‘roundy’ they tend to move about too.
So we have a battle between contrasting demands of the contents of our office buildings. The lazy solution is to tend towards ‘squary’ and fit humans into it. We say lazy because it’s not really a solution, it generally will cost more, be boring, and not work. But its easy and requires no skill to speak of to produce ‘squarey’ designs. ‘Roundy’ designs do take some effort because they make ‘squarey’ things fit into them, but they are often stylish, they are attractive to humans as they are both ‘roundy’! They can be very cost effective as there are few square corners of offices that cannot be filled, so they can have a high density.
At the heart of ‘roundy’ designs is the basic element of workplace design – the curve.
Generally there are lots of curves in a good chair. To create a good design the curve is used, but not necessarily on objects, but to create the space between objects. A small office with a round table could have round walls, the curves create the space.
Maybe you have to be a bit feminine to get that, but any blokes reading this – just think, what can we use the square corners of offices for anyway?

We can then design it for maximum productivity, build it and move you in lock, stock and barrel with the minimum of impact on the day-to-day running of your business.

Having purchased or leased your premises, why not maximise your internal volume by installing a mezzanine floor?
‘Out of hours office churn’ means moving, re-fitting or relocating occupied offices at a time when they’re not being used.
Collaborative working can speed up productivity and the generation of new ideas.
The right use of space can make as much impact on your business as the right choice of people.
