According to Julian Weyer, a partner and architect at C.F. Møller Architects, the COVID-19 pandemic has been something of an eye-opener for modern office workspaces:
“Of course, we were well aware of this before, but the pandemic has really opened our eyes to the fact that you don’t have to go into an office to do your work. In the course of 2020, companies discovered who actually needs the office – and who doesn’t. Many companies are therefore in the process of rethinking the office,” he says.
“Office work can be done anywhere, but to do the job smartly and meaningfully, we also need places to meet. So, the role of the office is changing from being a place where we go to sit at our desk to being a place where we can meet,” he explains.
