Offices are no longer solemn places where people type away for hours on end. A good office space is conducive to both visiting clients for an impression of prosperity as well as to the employees who spend more waking hours per day within these environs.
Opulence and grandeur are definitely not operative words for an office space design but that does not mean it should be dreary and uninteresting either. Similarly a good office design at the base level should be organized and segregated according to work departments for better productivity.
Starting from the reception area an office should spell efficiency and elegance as this is where the first impression is usually created. Further along all work areas must be grouped on the basis of operative levels and departments regardless of the theme or color scheme being followed.
Thought provoking prints, objects de art or other design elements act as beautiful backdrops to productivity.
