Commercial architecture involves the design of buildings and structures for use by business. At ESAG, students are encouraged to reflect on and to develop ideas and concepts based on the future of designing professional interior office spaces.
There are several important objectives when designing and organising office space: creating a work environment in which the use of paper is eliminated or greatly reduced (the “digital age”), being able to share & save information more easily, incorporate geographic mobility and design for the well-being of staff.
For example, design of meeting rooms with a wide range of tactile screens, an office that includes natural surroundings such as trees or plants, relaxation and massage rooms, etc, are there to encourage employee interaction and collaboration, whilst incorporating new technology.
Due to the fact that the workspace can have a significant impact on productivity, companies are now focused on creating a staff-friendly environment that inspires creativity and efficiency. As a result, spatial design within the work environment has become more and more important and specific design skills & knowledge are required in order to work in this exciting area of specialization.
