Also important are health and well-being. These were already key themes in office design before the pandemic, but post-Covid they will become even more important. Indoor climate aspects such as acoustics, daylight access, air quality and thermal comfort may finally get the attention they deserve. Likewise biophilia (bringing natural elements like plants into the office) and active design (design solutions that promote movement). Hygiene should now be added to this list as the pandemic has triggered a greater awareness of the risk of contagion in office buildings. This issue is of particular relevance to ABW offices where people share work settings. So, think of more frequent cleaning, dirt-trap-free furniture, easy-to-clean finishes and abundant wipes and hand sanitizers.With these notions in mind, I would say that there is a promising future for activity-based working. But, in all honesty, it is hard to know for sure. There is no shortage of wild predictions about the future of the office. Decision makers should not be carried away by these alarmist prophecies. As before, organizations should base their workplace strategies on a careful and critical analysis of their work processes, their culture, and the needs and expectations of their employees. The Covid-19 crisis has provided them with an excellent opportunity to conduct such an analysis and, even better, make good use of it.
