Housing blocks with co-working areas and greener interiors will help facilitate remote working in the post-pandemic world, according to panellists in this talk that Dezeen filmed for lift brand Aritco.
Titled Redefining Our Domestic Spaces, the talk took place last month as part of London Design Festival’s Design London trade show.
Moderated by writer Riya Patel, the discussion drew from a trend report called Future of the Home and a white paper titled Redefining Space, which Aritco produced in collaboration with forecasting company Springwise.
The talk saw David Schill, marketing director of lift company Aritco, Renée Searle, director of Threefold Architects and James Bidwell, founder of Springwise and strategy consultancy Re_Set, discuss the ways in which homes can be adapted to suit new work routines that have been brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.
Schill said that there is likely going to be an increase in housing developments that include co-working spaces for residents to use to work remotely.
“We will see more and more people living together and finding common areas,” he said.
