Can green-desking kickstart rural regeneration?

 

The work-from-wherever revolution is kickstarting investment in new ex-urban infrastructures that could make the countryside as economically productive as the city.

The growth of rural co-working spaces is one consequence of the pandemic making it possible for many of us to work anywhere. The fashion for ‘green-desking’ from retreats like Birch in the UK, and Sende in Spain, is on the rise among digital nomads. But there’s also potential for rural areas to capture the ex-commuter market in a more lasting way. Developers, community builders and policy makers are noticing the opportunity to turn neglected agricultural buildings into rural workspace – bringing investment and interest to regions in decline. As we rip up the rule book on how we work and live, could we design a more equitable future for town and country? . . . . . . .

Exotic Workplace Garden / Malinowski Design Urban & Landscape

 

The garden is the heart of the Olivia Business Center office complex with its area of over 200,000 sq. meters, for nearly 12,000 people. The building is located in the business district of Poland’s Tri-City and is one of the most modern facilities in Poland. What distinguishes this project is its uncompromising approach to the creation of the right vibe in a natural exotic garden. The result is the hybrid of the Nature Connect concept (human-nature-technology-building) – a space for work and relaxation together with a year-round garden. To achieve this, we have developed new climate control technology – an innovative solution on a European scale: the equivalent of “automatic weather”, controlling the temperature, humidity, sunlight, and air exchange, regardless of changing external climatic conditions and ensuring the well-being of plants and the comfort of garden users. It is the only place where a person can enjoy an exotic landscape without the discomfort often accompanying actually being in the tropics. . . . . . . .

How is urban agriculture driving the growth of the subsistence city?

 

From improving food security to the biophilic bonus, agriculture is set to redefine our urban topography.

Alongside masked faces and deserted streets, one of the enduring images of the first months of the pandemic was empty supermarket shelves. While the shelves didn’t stay empty for long, the moment did highlight the vulnerability of the supply chains that keep our cities nourished. 'The pandemic is exposing our food system’s fragility,' argued an editorial in The Guardian in March 2020, 'a crucial warning in a world where other shocks – notably from climate change – will be heading our way.' . . . . . . .

The pandemic might help us think more holistically about the ‘home office’, reseeding dynamism into high streets and housing developments as it goes.

Our homes were never designed to be offices. While some have found temporary adaptations acceptable for the longer term, many haven’t been able to find a healthy solution for living and working under one roof. Our experience in the pandemic has revealed people want to work from home, but for it to become truly accessible, we need to think about designing ‘work-ready’ homes from the outset . . . . . . .

People-centred research conducted by creative studio Space & Pepper reveals how the traditional office should be reimagined to better fit the radically changed needs of the modern worker.
For Hana Ahriz and Franziska Heuschkel, the Berlin-based creators of ‘human-centric concepts for community and shared spaces’, the COVID-19 crisis sparked creative thinking. With the launch of The Curiosity project, the duo set out to brainstorm and prototype design solutions for a better future in all areas of life. First up: work. To find out the main incentives for people to return to an office when they have the opportunity to work from home indefinitely, they conducted a series of in-depth interviews. With this, Ahriz and Heuschkel were able to identify the fundamental needs that most of our current office set-ups fail to fulfil . . . . . . . .

Decarbonizing office buildings has been central to many businesses' sustainability strategies, but what happens when work becomes distributed?
As co-working spaces become more tailored to the demands of their communities, many operators are committing to go carbon neutral to satisfy clients' need to operate with a holistic sustainability strategy. London-based provider Fora is the latest to set out an aim of being net zero by 2030 (meaning reducing emissions to a minimum and offsetting the rest). In 2019 The Commons became carbon neutral by switching to 100 per cent renewable energy across its seven locations in Australia. This year Triple Ferraz by sAtt Arquitectura became Spain’s first net-zero co-working space, a status it uses to attract organizations working to positively impact the environment . . . . . . .

For its largest wealth advisory hub in the world, Citibank tasked Ministry of Design with rethinking the banking experience for high-net-worth clients.
When global financial institution Citibank launched a design competition for a future wealth management centre in Singapore, it was looking for concepts that promised to foster a more immersive, interpersonal experience for its clients. In other words, designers were called to challenge the conventions and stagnancy of high-net-worth banking spaces. Ministry of Design had the right idea: the team visualized the hub as a biophilic ‘Banking Conservatory’ able to not only host the financial services but community-driven events and investment workshops. The realized space spans 2,275 sq-m and four floors, with over 30 client advisory rooms and flexible office and event areas . . . . . . . . .

Plant life is both a backdrop and one of the main acts at Tatler Asia's Collective-designed headquarters.
The surrounding sea and forest inspired Collective's design of the Tatler Asia headquarters in Hong Kong. The office doubles as an event space, with a dining and cocktail room fit to cater for Tatler Dining's food and beverages programme. Straddling nature and the city, the interior is organized so that breakout and hospitality-oriented spaces face the verdant landscape of Bennet's Hill, while working and meeting areas overlook the city. The building's 360-degree views are made possible by Collective's placement of ancillary areas such as storage, phone booths and editorial pin-up spaces at the interior's core.

Economists are calling it the Great Resignation. The pandemic has had many people rethink the balance of their working lives, either quitting their jobs or switching professions for greater satisfaction. A survey by Microsoft found 41 per cent of global workers are considering a major change this year. In April 2021, a record four million Americans quit their jobs according to the US Department of Labor. These facts have employers rapidly rethinking their benefits offer to keep valued staff on board. Perks can translate into physical space through amenities, but most are looking outdated given the complex issues brought to light by the pandemic. Here are three expert opinions on what people want from their employers and workplaces now.

In the newly social workplace, are we making enough room for introverts?

 

As we rush to redefine the role of office space, are we already forgetting recent lessons that taught us to be inclusive of all psychographics?

Post-pandemic visions of the workplace are staggeringly social. In concepts by three major office furniture brands – the Club Office by Vitra, The Core Office by Bene, and The Thriving Workplace by Knoll – private workstations take a backseat to increased public and semi-public space. These manufacturers expect the office to be the new social and cultural hearts of organizations; busy, lively hives of interpersonal activity that take cues from hospitality. The desk-is-dead trend isn’t new in the context of the agile workspace, but it’s the social ambitions for its replacement that might leave the more introverted among us feeling daunted.
