Dezeen teamed up with architecture firm TP Bennett for a talk exploring how the rise of home working has revealed a need for better-designed office spaces.
Since the coronavirus crisis was declared a global pandemic in March 2020, huge numbers of workers around the world have been forced to work from home. Companies have had to rapidly develop new ways for employees to connect with each other, blurring the boundaries between work and home.
With mass vaccination drives and easing of lockdowns likely to spark a return to the office for many, this panel discussion explored what the rise of home working can teach architects about designing better office spaces.
Moderated by Dezeen’s founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs, the panel featured TP Bennett principal director Cristiano Testi and Sonya Simmonds, head of Workplace, Design and Build at Spotify.
The panel discussed how workspace design can be improved for a post-pandemic future, how architects can help to design inclusive and accessible offices, and the importance of designing comfortable office spaces for the wellbeing of workers.
