THE RISE OF RESIMERCIAL DESIGN IN THE MODERN WORKPLACE
The modern workforce seeks comfortable, inspiring spaces that create a sense of calm and put people at ease – opening the door for creativity to flourish. To adapt to this shift, forward-thinking companies are increasingly developing offices with a residential sensibility in mind. In this month’s news aggregate, we explore the rise of resimercial design.
WHAT IS RESIMERCIAL DESIGN?
A combination of “residential” and “commercial,” the resimercial approach brings aspects of home into the contemporary workspace. We named resimercial comfort as a key consideration in our roundup of workplace design trends for this year – and so far, the conversation has only gained momentum. With today’s “always on” mentality, creating home-like environments – where we truly enjoy spending time – is one way to accommodate the increased demand placed on employees. Retrofit Magazine echoes this sentiment, noting that the line between commercial and residential interiors is disappearing and that resimercial environments help reduce stress and promote productivity. As the dynamics shift in today’s evolving workforce these often overlooked or rigid spaces are vital in the shift toward workplace settings that enhance wellbeing.
