Three surprising ways to winning workplace design

KBank office design

Integrated design is the trademark of an empowered office where people can be creative, get work done and also enjoy the process. dwp believes transformational office design comes down to three key elements: transparency, fluidity and flexibility.

Transparent Walls

Design for future workplace breaks down literal and figurative barriers so that information is no longer kept trapped behind office doors in departmental bunkers. In open plan spaces interaction can occur organically for greater productivity and growth. Even traditional industries, like banking, are evolving. dwp’s KBank Private Banking office in Bangkok, for example, was created for hot-desking on long countertops along large windows with stunning views and masses of natural light. A café adds a relaxed workspace and energy. The result is an extremely functional and flexible office design. Where people can work and brainstorm… with great coffee.

Fluid Structures

Modern office design is evolving alongside technology. Digital transformation optimises all the ways in which people work and collaborate. Work environments designed with digital and spatial infrastructure empower teams to function with agility and speed. Information is readily accessible so decisions can be made without climbing mountains of bureaucracy. dwp designed The Smart Dubai workplace to incorporate cutting edge technology with the latest in sustainability. Collaboration is accomplished through intelligent space planning, flexible spaces and, of course, elegant aesthetics.

Flexible Spaces

The modern workplace environment has a blended workforce that factors in the ‘gig economy’ and is less tied to physical locations. Workspaces designed to accommodate a range of demographics and disciplines in different capacities, both temporary talent and long term occupants, offers employers improved productivity and a rich talent pool of skills. dwp designed co-working space, Glowfish cafe, is a wonderfully executed example of flexible workspace. The active reception with barista bar and hot desk working area opens to a larger community space providing a single location for staff to work, socialise and hold community events.
