A growing number of companies are now using remote or hybrid working models to connect with colleagues and customers around the world. Many employees enjoy the flexibility of working from home, but some do not have an appropriate workspace. It would be a great idea to consider working from home as part of the design of new homes. Architects can create the perfect workspace whether it's a nook on the landing, a small room downstairs, or a cabin in the garden.
The Architecture is adapting to the new way of life of users. In order to bring a project to life, designers and architects benefit from tools like BIM to develop 3D-enhanced models. These programs help customers visualize and make the right decisions towards the final look of the spaces.
As users are working on laptops, cell phones, and tablets, the need for fixed spaces is no longer mandatory. Whether at home or in the office, the areas to work, study, and relax are fluid. There is no need for a dedicated dining room, office, or TV room, one space can function as all three depending on the need at the given moment. As a result, it is better to have an open layout for living spaces. Although some would argue that a dedicated office allows for a more controlled environment while still allowing other members of the household to go about their daily chores. It is up to the users to choose the best design of space based on their lifestyle.
In situations where an enclosed area is needed, partitions can be used. It is possible to create a temporary solution using sliding walls or internal double doors. Open and close them frequently, as indoor activities change throughout the day. Adapting spaces for multiple uses became necessary.
