Park-Inspired Workplaces

Juhyunkim Architecture PC Envisions Future of Offices as Green Spaces

— July 14, 2014 — Art & Design
Cubicles were forsaken for more open spaces and now those may morph into park-inspired workplaces if Juhyunkim Architecture PC, a firm based in New York City, has anything to say about it. With a focus on well-being and creativity, it is only natural that design firms would look to bring the outdoors indoors to constantly refresh the mind in as natural a way as possible.

Conceived for Space Forward, an ideas competition sponsored by 1407 Broadway, a Manhattan workspace, the park-inspired workplace features a grassy floor and outdoor cafe tables instead of cubicles. The designers write, "Traditionally, the park, which is an inviting and comfortable place, seemed to be located at the opposite side of the spectrum from the office, which feels restricted and confined." Not anymore.
Trend Themes
1. Park-inspired Workplaces - Offices are seeing a shift towards green spaces and park-inspired designs, which creates a disruptive innovation opportunity for design companies and office furniture manufacturers to create new products and solutions that encourage creativity and well-being.
2. Open Workspaces - The transformation from cubicles to open workspaces has set the stage for park-inspired workspaces, and offers disruptive innovation opportunities for companies specializing in office furniture, lighting, and interior design to create solutions that combine functionality, comfort and the great outdoors.
3. Well-being Design - The growing trend towards well-being design in workplaces emphasizes the importance of natural elements like green spaces and sunlight, creating a disruptive innovation opportunity for new companies to develop wellness-focused products and services, including air purification systems and office plant installations.
Industry Implications
1. Office Design - Juhyunkim Architecture PC's park-inspired workplace and other similar designs offers disruptive innovation opportunities for companies specializing in office design, including architects and interior designers.
2. Furniture Manufacturing - Designing furniture and office equipment that incorporates greenery and other outdoor motifs offers disruptive innovation opportunities for furniture manufacturers and equipment suppliers in this industry.
3. Lighting Design - Park-inspired workplaces require specific lighting to enhance the natural environment, thereby offering a disruptive innovation opportunity for lighting design companies to create custom made lighting solutions that provide adequate lighting without overpowering the natural feel of the workspace.
