The coronavirus pandemic hit the office sector very hard. However, the current improvement in the situation and the return of employees from home to work bring new demands for a change in the working environment. Offices will become more flexible, with adaptive uses that allow for a hybrid model of operation. They will become social and business mushrooms, places for mutual meetings, cooperation, innovation and creativity.
"The range of services and benefits in the workplace focused on health and comfort will increase. The future hybrid office will rely heavily on new technologies and will require a constant connection between the office and home. Although some companies will reduce their offices, the demand for quality projects and places still persists, ”explains Lucie Loudová, director of the architectural and construction company Tétris.
Data from the JLL Global Benchmarking Services survey confirm the importance of offices for internal and external collaboration, peer interaction and overall brainstorming.
"The new internal division of offices will significantly adjust the relationship between work that requires peace and concentration and cooperation with others. Preference will be given to spaces for cooperation and creativity, while the area for concentrated work will be, for example, only 15 percent of the total area for telecommunications companies, "adds Lucie Loudová, director of the architectural and construction company Tétris.
