Getting the Entrance Area Right in Your Office Space

Posted by Evolve Design Team on Apr 18, 2017 9:53:25 AM

It’s important to give a good impression to guests. Your office’s reception area might be the first point of contact between a visitor and your company, so it is vital to get these opening interactions right.

Here’s how to tailor your Dubai office fit-out project to meet this challenge, and to get the very best out of your office entrance area.

Objective-oriented Spaces

Different offices are designed to achieve different objectives. If you are a recruiting firm, you might have to meet with clients, candidates and partners on an almost daily basis. Perhaps these visitors arrive in groups, or individually – once or twice a day or just a couple of times a week. The space needs to be large enough to accommodate these visitors, with a clearly visible reception desk and comfortable waiting area.

Alternatively, your office might only receive a few visitors each year. In this case, you need to know what sort of goals these visitors need to achieve, and must design a space which enables these goals to be met. The starting point for both approaches is knowledge and understanding of your objectives for the space.

Company Identity

When people visit your office, the space is the frontline for your company. It acts as the face, as the point of interaction between your corporate identity and the outside world. So what is this identity?

Perhaps you want to display the prestige of what you have achieved. Maybe you simply want to create a warm and welcoming impression on visitors. These are both key components of your identity as an organization.

Flooring is Key

Practical elements are also key to achieving the perfect reception area, not least the flooring you select. Carpeting injects warmth into a space, while hardwood implies history, grandeur and accomplishment. Ceramic tiles, on the other hand, deliver an impression of clinical excellence and sleek cleanliness.

Remember acoustics too. If you want to further intensify the grandeur, the sound created by solid wood and other resonant materials can add this extra element of status.

Smart Security

Another practical concern; security. As the entrance area to your office is the point of connection between inside and outside, you need robust, but smart, security measures in place to protect your business. These could include e-beacons which let you know who is entering and exiting, electronic door locks, meeting and greeting personnel, and other practical security features.
