When it comes to office design, good planning is essential. A good office design improves productivity and contributes to the well-being of your employees. It also reflect your company culture, branding and how you like to work, both internally and with your customers.
Believe it or not, the average adult spends over 50% of their daytime hours in an office. It’s the central part of our day and often the place we spend the most time in. This is why, in addition to functioning well, we want an office design that creates a pleasant and inviting place to spend time in.
With some thoughtful planning, you can achieve both… but where do you start?
Miracles design offers strategic space planning that suits both functionally and aesthetically. We offer visual walkthrough that allows our client to "walk around" and get a feel for their new workspace before they move in. This allows the client to get a sense of the look (and feel), and gives the opportunity to move/swop products, change colours, walls, carpets and more. 3D walk through are the next steps up in visualising office designs, accompanied with office plans. It gives the clients a true understanding of their new space.
Miracles Design Consultants was tasked to design a stimulating work environment for the flag carrier airline of Singapore, Singapore Airlines Limited.
Ditching the typical, uninspiring office cubicles for an open plan workspace is implemented to maximise the flexibility use of the space at TECHSQ, SIA Training Centre. The design space is to promote openness and transparency which allow the employees to meet each other and endorse collaborative working.
Given Singapore Airlines’ role as an award-winning airline corporation, we sought to showcase a contemporary, vibrant, futuristic and agile environment, while simultaneously preserving a clear and clean aesthetic that contribute to this message. The premise is to design an open space that can promote team integration and maintain versatile common areas, wherein different types of activities can be carried out. An open floor plan is chosen, with the operational area on the perimeter of the building in order to take advantage of natural light and, which enable the common services strategically distributed around the building.
The project incorporates dynamic spaces such as conference rooms with different capabilities, quiet rooms for virtual calls or meetings, private huddle rooms, project rooms, fully equipped hot desks for casual meetings, and open plan workstations. As for recreational areas, open space is designed which comprises a “futuristic work café” and with an operable wall where this space can be expanded to host “Town Halls.”
Brand image is expressed through the use of colour in different spaces and in elements that feature simple lines. Every single one of these details represents the implementation of materials that feel futuristic, fresh and innovative, which infuses quality to space. This includes a spiral staircase linking the two levels and undulating lines on the floors to define open spaces and working collaboration spaces.
