We are living in a unique time where companies are needing to continually offer more complicated, tailored and higher quality solutions to their customers. This means innovation is a key factor – greater emphasis is placed on generating new ways of thinking about the same problem as well as completely out of the box generation of ideas (ideation). The current workforce is also unique in its diversity as well as demographic. The demands of the workplace have never been higher and design needs to support the function in a simple and direct manner. Flexibility is of course the key and thus new approaches and real estate products are becoming popular.
Co-work is developing into an essential plug in for companies to augment their real estate needs and address multidisciplinary collaboration. This approach dictates that companies look at their own real estate differently and thus a new type of adaptive workplace is coming to prominence. SW1 is working in conjunction with a Global Tech Giant and Global Co-work Service Provider to augment and provide flexibility for their workplace needs.
With their unique take on generational demographics, real estate and the workplace, SW1 researches and designs education spaces with the understanding that the seeds of the workplace of the future are planted in the schools, colleges and universities of the present. There is a trend emerging which blurs the lines between education and workplace design of which SW1 are at the forefront.
“We’re creating a new type of workplace that improves wellbeing and increases productivity. People determine and inhabit space without boundaries”
