No Stone Unturned: ‘An office shouldn’t be over-designed, but have room for development’
Raquel proposes that real estate investors and operators should remain flexible when searching for the ideal office space. She emphasises the importance of involving people in the design process while leaving room for growth and development.
Demonstrating how M Moser tests its workplace solutions across its living labs, Raquel shares insight into the design of the latest office in Amsterdam. “The key is to start with a vision but allow for changes as needed. When designing an office, it is crucial to understand the needs of the people who will use it and to involve everyone in the process.”
The pandemic has changed the function of the office and the expectation that people are returning primarily to socialise is also starting to shift. Raquel adds that people come to the office to focus on work, and a well-designed space can provide better conditions for this than working from home.
