Design Ideas to Improve The Workplace

February 7, 2012 Leave a comment

There are lots of ways to use design to increase focus and productivity in the workplace, and here are a few good ones:

Lights: Study after study shows that humans are meant to be exposed to natural sunlight during the day. Exposure to bright lights in general — but particularly to natural sunlight — keeps our minds and bodies more alert and active, which can increase productivity and focus in the workplace. Consider adding skylights, and even adding in natural lights rather than florescent lights can make a big difference in workplace focus and productivity.

Walls: Traditional office spaces use cubicles with high walls, and it can be a problem. Workers feel isolated; they’ll be more productive if they feel they’re part of a community. Conversations are louder; workers have to raise their voices to talk between cubicles. Installing clear glass walls between cubicles is one excellent solution for this, but many offices are also starting to lower cubicle walls to create more of an open, community feel.

Meetings: One design idea to fix both of these problems is to build in several small meeting spaces along the edges of the office. Stick with the open feel by giving them soundproof glass walls. The rooms don’t need to be very large – just enough to hold five or six people comfortably for an impromptu meeting. Soundproof walls keep the other workers from getting distracted, and several small rooms allow for groups to meet whenever they need to.

Breaks: When your workers go to the break room, they should be able to actually take a break and unwind. Give your break room all the essentials – such as a fridge and microwave – but also add in some homey extras, like a couple of comfortable couches, bar-height tables for small lunch groups, and relaxing décor.
