Architecture & Design have just published an article on the future of workpace design and our PetSure project has been included in the review of progressive Australian projects that provide a glimpse into where workplaces of the future are headed. Here’s a brief extract;
“Physical and mental wellbeing should not be treated separately in workplace design, but rather designed for as part of a singular concept. In the same way that non-physical design elements such as light and air improve the health of a building’s human occupants, so too do the more tangible and traversable elements that are expressed with an office’s floorplan and integrated technologies.
