Challenges within the workplace like stress, fatigue, and distraction can have a major impact on your productivity; but did you know that the design of the workplace can play a part as well?
Although traditional offices sometimes have cost challenges when it comes to more custom office layouts, a new and growing design concept has the potential to significantly change the way you work — for the better. Transterior design is the infusion of exterior elements into interior spaces. For offices, this means that elements such as flora, color, materials, layout, and light are all taken into consideration during office build-out. The benefits are abundant — studies show that this kind of environment can positively influence both your physical and mental health. Its use is particularly rewarding as it can be a solution to some of our more common work stresses.
According to the Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, some fifty studies have shown that the presence of natural elements keeps the mind relaxed and in better shape to be more productive. The simple act of immersing yourself into a more natural environment can significantly improve your mood. It is common to find succulents, small plants, or flowers on people’s desks in an attempt to achieve these effects, but the responsibility for creating a productive and enjoyable workplace goes beyond the individual. Companies need to construct and maintain these living environments, however, the scope of such a build-out and running costs are often cost-prohibitive.
