In recent years, the smart office and the way we use it have undergone a massive transformation. Flex-, activity-based- or agile working are the keywords in this revolution, meaning that employees are given the power to choose when and where they work, either in the office or from other locations. Office spaces are designed to support flexible work and maximise utilisation. While it even once seemed that the office would disappear altogether, we believe it is here to stay.
To reinstate the office at the centre of working life, we need to review our understanding of the office spaces and the role that technology plays in providing an optimal-, responsive workplace. In this paper, we outline the challenges we observed in the office and illustrate how technology can bridge the gap.
