Pamela Kamenitsas, Amicus Design Manager, on how COVID-19 has changed design | United Workplace

In the immediate term, business leaders were confronted with some tough decisions around business continuity. Most organisations temporarily closing their spaces – but the long-term effect this will have on working could be profound. How will this be the catalyst that redefines the workspace of the future?

We are seeing a huge demand for workspace flexibility which goes far beyond one-way systems to facilitate social distancing, and screening and partitioning between desks. There is a growing requirement for the ‘touchdown’ office to provide space, facilities and sanctuary for working-from-home employees. Our time spent in lockdown has emphasised the fact that the workspace is changing and so is our way of working.
