The future belongs to intelligent, eco-friendly office spaces
Stephan Degenhart, Managing Director of Drees & Sommer Middle East, talks about a smarter approach to the coronavirus. The Covid-19 shutdown changed the office environment overnight, resulting in an unprecedented field study of the workplace. This triggered a debate about the future of office space. It isn’t the number of square meters, but the quality of the space that will determine its future viability. “The office building of the future is much more than just a building with desks in it. It is a place where people can meet in person and where the services are entirely tailored to the need of users”, he says.
