What will the office of the future look like? That question has been debated extensively since the onset of the pandemic, which saw a dramatic shift to remote and hybrid work models. But according to architect Christian Giordano, President and Co-owner of 100+-year-old national design firm Mancini Duffy, there won’t be any one-size-fits-all solution.
“It depends on the market and the sector and the type of company you are,” Giordano says. “And that’s a good thing.”
In our recent interview, Giordano shared his perspective on how offices are being reimagined for the post-COVID era. He predicts that the offices of the future will be highly customized to meet the needs of each individual company. Gone are the days when every company aspired to emulate the ultra-hip vibe of Silicon Valley tech giants like Google. Now the focus is on understanding how your employees work and creating spaces tailored to their workflow.
