What Makes the Ideal Office Space?

Is it time to upgrade your office space? How do you create the best office space for your company that leads to productivity?  Fortunately there have been numerous design and science studies that have identified 8 factors that lead to an incredible office space:

 

THE LIGHTING

1. WINDOWS
Working in a space with windows that provide ventilation and natural light has proven to lead to more rested employees. The light exposure shows employees get more and better sleep.

2. AMBIENT LIGHT
Natural light has shown increased workplace performance and better sleep levels.  Moderate light levels have also shown increased levels of creativity. 

 

THE SPACE

Bond Collective also provides conference rooms, phone booths, production studio, and recording booths.

3. NOISE CONTROL
Noise is a common distraction that prevents productivity.  Typical office noise pollution stems from phone calls, meetings and computer sounds.  At Bond Collective we have taken this into account with conference rooms and phone booths.

4. DEDICATED PERSONAL SPACE
Studies have shown that employees that are allowed to personalize their spaces are more productive.  Personalization comes in the form of personal photos, plants, desk organization and artwork.  Within our membership options, we offer dedicated desks for those that seek this type of option.

5. VARIETY OF SPACE
Workers need elements that disrupt the structure of the workplace that come in forms of common areas, open kitchens, semi-private spaces and private areas.  This helps them move between focused individual work, group work, and down time.

6. PLANTS
Green plants scattered through the office has been said to increase happiness levels.  Bond Collective aims to have a variety of plants, succulents and floral arrangements throughout our office spaces.

7. POP OF COLOR
Color has a significant on the mental state.  Different colors promote certain moods, feelings and mental capacity. For example, blue is intellectually stimulating, green is calming, and yellow awakens our creativity.

8. ARTWORK
Art is considered to hold great calming, inspiring, and therapeutic capacity.
