Different Aspects of Office Interior Design in South Africa
Modern office areas are designed with attention to detail and creativity. Most large corporations and businesses are very particular about ensuring that their office spaces are designed aesthetically; that the furniture is comfortable and the areas are segregated well.
Every office space is different, the kind of business that is carried out there is different and that means the Office Interior Design has to reflect that and cater to those needs. We at Brand DNA have been operating in this space for a number of years and have the expertise to provide our clients the kind of office spaces that will fit in perfectly with their requirements.
Office Interior Design – Things to Consider
When we are handling any Office Interior Design project, there are a number of different aspects we take into account, such as:
- Available space- We survey the space and understand how this area has to be divided to match all the functions or departments in that office.
- Floor layout- Many people now prefer an open office concept; while this may seem simple enough, the spaces have to be segregated well. Even in an open office plan, care has to be taken to install dividers of correct heights so every employee has a certain amount of space to carry out their work in peace. Aside from this, most offices will have some cabins for the higher executives and directors and may need enclosed meeting rooms and conference rooms as well. There should also be enough aisle space to facilitate easy movement in the office.
- Number of people– The plan, furniture, number of dividers and screens will also be dependent on the number of employees in that office. For instance, if you have less square footage, the furniture and tables would have to be more compact to comfortably accommodate the number of employees you have.
- Ergonomics– It’s common for people that work at their desks for extensive hours, to develop aches and pains that have the potential to turn chronic. This is why it’s important to ensure that the furniture in your office is ergonomically designed. This means the comfort, practicality and functionality factors will be taken into account while designing the furniture.
