LOCATION : Amsterdam | Chennai [Proposed]
PROJECT TYPE : Work Environments
COLLABORATORS : The Berlage, TU Delft; Steelcase Workspace Futures
Production of work and the environment it takes place in has been undergoing quiet and drastic changes over the last decade. Start-up offices and small scale business entrepreneurs are often seen working in cafes, public spaces, accomodative libraries, etc rather than full-fledged office scenarios. The design of the work space needs to be treated keeping in mind the experience of the employees/ work producers. The study done previously in collaboration with The Berlage and Steelcase, Inc. invovled analysing and designing spaces for activity-based scenarios.
Co-working spaces are slowly becoming a norm in India too. We are currently collaborating with a few incubators, and The Works, Chennai to develop a model for designing these knowledge spaces.
