6 Concepts for Designing an Office
The importance of an office design that helps to cultivate the utmost wellbeing and productivity in the users of such spaces can barely be overstated.
After all, with one recent study by the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) having found that British workers will each spend an average of 3,515 full days at work over the course of their lifetimes, it’s fair to say that the office of the future is one in which a significant proportion of people will spend a significant proportion of their time.
