My particular area of interest is in commercial design. By adopting a holistic approach to a design an understanding that...

As the coronavirus pandemic has forced many to work remotely, professionals see their
relationship with the office changing after covid-19. Local workspaces will become more popular and opportunities in areas such as Shoreditch will prove very popular with creatives seeking a better work/life balance. Many workers do not have access to a separate work space in their home and there has become no separation between leisure and work time which is having a detrimental effect on our mental health. With the economy at an all-time low it is more important than ever that we protect and nurture our future designers. As we come out of this pandemic many office users, especially in the creative sectors will still desire physical spaces to meet, collaborate and generate ideas.

The design is a flexible workspace environment for creative graduates and established creative entrepreneurs, that stimulates creativity, collaboration and mentoring. It will be designed with best practices and government protocols making it a safe place to work after COVID-19 or during any future pandemics. It will be an affordable solution to working from home enabling creatives to connect and address a better work/life balance. The design will offer the opportunity for work, relaxation and play. This was a collaborative project with interior designer Emma white, by developing two individual interior spaces and one collaborative area. These spaces are as follows.

The Generating chamber and link studio will provide a flexible workspace environment that will enable creatives to connect and address a better work life balance in a healthy and sustainable space. Fusing the old with the new this space will combine wood and metal with neutral tones. Furniture will provide pops of colour. Leaving some raw elements exposed such as brickwork, pipes and ducts will remind people of the buildings’ original purpose and complement the history of its former industrial use. The large generating chamber will be split into levels using mezzanine floors connected and accessed by staircases. Work spaces or atelier’s will be found on these levels with ergonomically designed furniture. Biophilia will help clean the air and create a feeling of wellness.

The Energy chamber & Creation chamber designed by Emma White will provide a place to escape from the noise of society. After spending time creating and collaborating it will be a space to explore silence and mindfulness.

The shared courtyard was co-designed with Emma White and will connect the two spaces and provide an opportunity for people to socialise and relax. It will create a neighbourhood and network of other like-minded individuals.
