Strategy: Question the Sedentary work style

Keeping in mind the nature of work at the new workplace, the design intent was to create an active office space – a space that is safe and promotes health and wellness for all. Keeping in mind the diverse and inclusive approach of the organisation, the design team devised a Universal Design approach.

It involved designing spaces that can be used by the widest range of people possible. A hierarchy of spaces was created to choose from, in order to activate all the five senses of the human body. In addition to loads of natural light and green elements that add energy to the ofice space.

The long work hours in a developing country means many hours of sitting for the employees. The design gently aimed to alter their behaviour by prompting them to become more dynamic.

High tables for discussions placed in the vicinity of the workspaces ensured that employees walked around which in turn enhanced energy and focus levels. The design made it professionally acceptable to walk around and have meetings while standing.
