Total Office Design: 50 Contemporary Workplaces.
Zumstein, Kerstin and Helen Parton.
Total Office Design: 50 Contemporary Workplaces.
Architects and interior designers face new and increasing challenges in office design. Employers still want to have inspiring offices for their employees (and to impress their clients), often with exotic features alongside the usual spaces and functions, but the design brief also must consider tighter budgets, increasingly strict environmental requirements, and the changing nature of how and where we work. This international survey of fifty offices-all built since 2007-profiles designs that have risen to the challenges. There are low-cost offices for smaller companies that typically use recycled materials and a craft-oriented approach to interiors. In what might be considered the "classical approach" to office design, plans for medium-sized offices often place a strong emphasis on environmental sensitivity and working within a tight budget. Large, often multinational, corporations need significant floor area for their employees, and while the projects have greater budgets, they also have to answer major environmental requirements.
