Do we give enough thought to the impact that the design and layout of our workplaces has on our individual & collective productivity & well-being? I delve into the world of workspace science to find the answers.
Ros Pomeroy is a co-founder of Brainy Birdz; a consultancy specialising in the unpronounceable (for me, anyway) ‘zusammenarbeit’ - that’s to say, how people work together. Together with co-founder Dr Kerstin Sailer, Ros is at the forefront of using data to help diagnose what makes a workplace tick and what role design plays in this.
In this podcast:
- What is workspace science and who should it be of interest to?
- How is design enabling the growth in co-working that we’re seeing?
- How can seating & proximity plans be optimised to bust silos in the office & bring people together?
- What’s the importance of visibility within the work place?
- Why are open-plan offices getting such a hard time of late?
Ros’s favourite buildings are the new Google Campus & The Francis Crick Institute at Kings Cross for their design-led focus on collaboration & knowledge sharing. Her innovation to follow is the growing trend of data-led decision making across the build environment.
