Office Build Focus
Joint Managing Director and Co-Founder of design and workplace consultancy, Office Principles, Cyril Parsons considers how the office is destined to reinvent itself as the way we work changes dramatically moving forward.
As we navigate through these uncertain times, it is more important than ever to create workplace environments that help people to work in a way that best suits their needs. As the base of any design, it is important that the flooring you choose incorporates the right colours, patterns and textures to support the mood and experiences you wish to create and curate, says Laura Light, Concept Design Team Leader at Interface.
In early summer 2019, the new traffic hub Køge Nord Station was officially opened – featuring a spectacular footbridge, a station and a park area that form a significant hub for green mobility as well as a unique example of Danish architecture and engineering. Køge Nord Station was designed by an architectural team consisting of COBE and DISSING+WEITLING architecture.
