Through a methodology that marries function, design, sustainability, and ergonomics with cost and scheduling objectives, we are able to build spaces that support the organization, its employees, and visitors. Green Building & Wellness: recycling materials, capturing unused space, creating new sharing concepts are several of the focus areas for Spacesmith that extend the benefits of greener, healthier buildings, including the issue of sustainable developments that can be undermined by finishes, furnishings, and equipment with toxic constituents.
Components we consider when designing a workplace:
Communication: We recognize that communication between leadership and employees fosters creativity and productivity. We look for opportunities to facilitate various types of collaboration space in our designs.
Ergonomics: Central to our design philosophy, we are passionate about thoughtful planning that activates spaces and compels movement, while being accessible and comfortable for everyone.
Culture and Brand: For us designing to brand is much more than just using graphics. We look to the client’s culture of confidence, personality, and belief system to inform every aspect of design.
Technology: As changing trends in technology enable work to be done more collaboratively, remotely, and efficiently, we consider how these advances will inspire the design of dynamic and responsive workplaces.
Flexible Design for Growth: Essential to design excellence is the proactive planning for future growth in a manner that is readily achievable at minimal cost and disruption while maintaining the design intent.
Sustainability: Sustainable design is integral to our practice. Through our credentials as LEED experts, we have developed a series of best practices that are affordable and adopted on all projects.
The WELL-Building Standard: This standard complements sustainability practices by focusing on how to provide comfort for individual users. Examples of this are choosing materials and products that are environmentally healthy, specifying controls that can be adjusted individually, and creating interior elements that support well-being.
