VC Insights - The Influence of Resimericial Design
It’s undeniable that when people tell you that they work in a traditional office environment that there is a certain image that comes to mind. Hundreds of small cramped cubes, artificial light that is too dim (or artificial light that is too bright) and a general lack of comfort. Studies show that 20% of employees say that they would take a pay cut to work in an office environment that is more up-to-date and more conducive well-being. Additionally, 23% of employees would even consider quitting their job is their workplace became too out of date! However, Millennials to incoming Gen Z’s can tell you that workplace environment is important. But it’s not just simply an up-to-date workplace that employees are looking for. People want comfort. A large amount of people spend more, if not just as much time in the office as they do at home. What’s becoming increasingly important is having the comfort that one can find at home brought into the workplace, which is why resimercial design is so relevant in today’s work force.
Resimercial design has a positive impact on wellbeing, collaboration, and overall productivity. It’s not just about putting residential furniture in a commercial environment. Resimercial design is its own entity, meeting the needs of workplace culture by implementing products and materials designed with a purpose. Its purpose, generally speaking, is to enhance the lives of employees and improve overall quality of life around the clock. What you get at home – flexibility, comfort and quality – is now what you can get at work. Chairs and couches you would find in your own living room are now standard in the open office. Artificial lighting that is too dim or too bright? No more! Natural light is fair game with floor to ceiling windows that line the office exterior. Though it can give off a vibe only suitable for those who live the open office life, the influx of resimercial design does not mean that you have to demolish every demising wall in your office. Resimercial design is about public, private and collaborative spaces; and it isn’t always about open or closed office, but rather the amenities/furnishings that make the space effective.
So, how do you incorporate resimercial design into your current workplace? Start small. Work environments with traditional café spaces are only occupied for a few hours a day. Transform your café into a space that can be used all day long! Replace your two person high tops with an elongated farm table. This now becomes a place where employees can eat lunch at one end, make a phone call on the other and collaborate on a project somewhere in the middle. Long community tables encourage flexibility. The main goal is to make the workplace welcoming and to provide a comfortable place to spend time. But note, resimercial isn’t just a millennial based trend. It is relevant to furniture, layouts and architecture and it is stemming from academia. Universities and prep schools offer flexibility that people are looking for see in the workplace, like studying in the café or the library. Resimercial design creates a more informal and encouraging workplace where employees are able to feel more interconnected, more comfortable and genuinely more productive. ... See MoreSee Less
Pacific Lake Partners, a private equity firm in Boston’s Back Bay, invested in VC to be the creative mind behind their new office layout. The look and feel of the space is industrial chic in nature with an overarching “resimercial” aesthetic. The goal of the project was to design a space that didn’t have a corporate feel although the space resides in a traditional hi rise corporate building. The use of residential style furniture helped to achieve this goal and accentuate the sleek, modern pieces throughout. The open office plan provides a partial enclosure of walls accented by black framing that seamlessly streamlines the different areas within the space. A variety of light fixtures are showcased throughout the different areas of the space; effortlessly tying together the formal and the informal. Accessible outside views line the perimeter of the space as to let in natural light and enhance the tones and materials used within. ... See MoreSee Less
In the world of design there are two components that are mutually dependent on each other – good architecture and good lighting. One cannot exist without the other. It is best to see space and light...
