With many employees working from home, either completely or as a hybrid solution, office designs in Manchester will include a social breakout space to welcome these colleagues and encourage informal team building when they are on site. This is encapsulated by the term ‘resi-mercial’ where commercial are influenced more and more with residential styles and design.
Likewise, collaborative working will be a key consideration in office design so that both office-based and home-based colleagues can easily work together on projects, saving time and the cost of unproductive teams.
It is expected that the future of office designs in Manchester will continue to favour open plan layouts. However, partitioning is becoming increasingly popular as a versatile way to create privacy and identify specific areas. Partitions can be changed easily as the needs of the business change.
The use of social media to promote companies will encourage Manchester businesses to create an office design that is on-brand and social-friendly. Social media is used to show images and videos from the office that might simply be along the lines of ‘a day in the life’ or for promoting a current project. Company branding should feature in all office builds to create a consistent, professional identity across all social media and marketing.
