Office in India is an architectural and design phenomenon, whether it is a small office or a massive building. The main purpose of an office environment is to support its occupants in performing their assignments at minimum cost and best satisfaction. In recent times, our team at Panjwani Architects Dehradun have started taking into account importance of changing climate and its effects on environment in design practices in India. Sustainable work spaces are becoming more prominent. More energy efficient buildings co-relate to a more efficient and productive work environment. In India we are seeing a new concept that allows you to take office space on rent on hourly basis is getting popular. The architects will now have to design each area as complete office unit.
An office building must have flexible and technologically-advanced working environments that are safe, healthy, comfortable, durable, aesthetically-pleasing, and accessible. Office in city like Dehradun in India is different as compared to that in metropolitan city. Offices in any city must be able to accommodate the specific space and equipment needs of the occupants. Special attention is given by the team of designers at Panjwani Architects to the selection of best interior finishes and art installations, particularly in entry spaces, conference rooms and other areas with public access. Keeping in view the power situation in India it is most important that the building must be energy efficient to the best so that the power bills are kept in check.
Our architects at Panjwani Architect Dehradun while designing consider the integrated requirements of the intended occupants. This includes their desired image, degree of public access, operating hours, growth demands, security issues and vulnerability assessment results, organization and group sizes, growth potential, long-term consistency of need, group assembly requirements, electronic equipment and technology requirements, acoustical requirements, special floor loading and filing/storage requirements, special utility services, any material handling or operational process flows and special health hazards.
The high-performance office must easily and economically accommodate frequent renovation and alteration. These modifications may be due to management reorganization, personnel shifts, changes in business models, or the advent of technological innovation, but the office infrastructure, interior systems, and furnishings must be up to the challenge. We at Panjwani Dehradun believe that keeping the internal partitions modular is the best option in India as it allows for restructuring without incurring any substantial costs. Surplus electrical and computer points should be given to accomodate increased staff at a later stage. In India hiring happens phasewise and hence the architect should keep the flexibility in mind while designing the office buildings for best usage of space.
Worker satisfaction, health and comfort of employees in a high-performance office are of paramount concern. Provide individualized climate control that permits users to set their own temperature, ventilation rate, and air movement preferences are some of the things that our architects at Panjwani Architect Dehradun focus on. Access to windows and view, opportunities for interaction, and control of one's immediate environment are some of the factors that contribute to improved workplace satisfaction. Natural light is best for the health and psychological well-being of office workers. The architect has to make sure that maxmimum number of employees get day light in their work area.
The external facade and the ambience of the office building should give a sense of pride to the people working in these offices. The interiors should be done keeping in mind the brand image of the company and the colours should reflect the colour theme of the company. The environment should not look gaudy or ostentatious but sleek and efficient. In India and around the world the reception is the front face of the company and should be carefully designed keeping in mind the smartness and efficiency that needs to be reflected from the place.
