Style AND Substance: How to Achieve Both in Your Office

Posted by Evolve Design Team on Apr 25, 2017 11:47:05 AM

You’ve probably heard the phrase “style over substance.” It’s used to mock and look down on those who place a stunning exterior over depth and function, and to praise those who adopt a ‘no frills,’ ‘getting the job done’ approach.pixabay reference imageImage via Pixabay
Of course, there is something admirable about the latter way of doing business. After all, business is about getting results and hitting objectives; not about winning fashion contests.But, there is more to it than this. Your Dubai office space needs to do both; it needs to turn heads on the catwalk and hit your growth targets – it needs to break hearts and take names in equal measure.Here’s how to do it…

Consider Employee Mentality

What sort of environment do your employees want to work in? What sort of atmosphere do you want to provide for your employees? The answer to these two questions should be the same; you should be focused on creating a space in which your team feels happy, comfortable and ready to be at their best. How to find out what will support your employees? Talk to them. Democratize the process. You all share the space together, after all, so find out what they want and work to put this plan into action.

Task-Oriented Design

Begin by understanding the tasks you need to accomplish on a daily basis. If you hold regular meetings, you need a space to enable this. If conference calls with remote teams are a common part of your routine, factor this in.

If your business dictates that employees often collaborate in small groups, make room for this. With your routine tasks supported, you can begin to transpose stylish elements over the top, without compromising on function.


Unify Your Space

Unless your office is a quaint retro café, a hodgepodge approach simply isn’t going to work. You need unity, you need a central thread which permeates through the entire design, and you need to approach your design as a whole.This means giving the same level of respect to style as to substance, carefully planning and developing the effect you want to create.
