Perhaps there is no more iconic picture of the modern office than of the wide open space, rows of desks arranged together, surrounded by fashionable Scandinavian furniture, hordes of millennials banging away at their keyboards wearing their high-end headphones. Large windows and all white everything keep the space light, airy, and up to the expected aesthetics of modern design. Maybe throw some plants in for good measure. While we’re at it, sprinkle in a couple well-behaved dogs, a work BFF, and a dozen flannel shirts and VOILA! You have the modern open office space. 

As companies compete for the most talented employees, they have realized that it’s more important than ever for the physical office to reflect the modern culture of the company itself. That means the dreaded cubicle farm is a thing of the past. Companies are breaking down walls and opening doors in an attempt to foster conversation and creativity, enhance relationships, and promote transparency.

The standards of the modern office are shifting all the time. Gone are the days of cubicle farms and compartmentalized solitude. Gourmet coffee, cabinets of snacks, dogs in the office, and funky furniture fill newly designed open spaces. Large windows cast natural light throughout open rooms with rows of desks. Large spaces, open concepts, and room for collaboration are all the goals of the modern office.
