Design For Activity-Based Working

In this episode, we’re joined by May Fawzy from award-winning interior architecture and design firm, MF Design Studio, to explore the impact of activity-based working on office design. Back in the day, the corporate workplace used to be filled with serried rows of employees in battery-style cubicles while bosses resided in spacious paneled offices on the upper floors of the building. Today’s organisations measure their success by the ideas, innovation and creativity of their teams. And, when individuals come together to talk, big ideas are born. The result is a more flexible approach to workplace design where staff can occupy any space at any point of their day depending on the activity they are performing. But what does activity-based working mean for the interior designer?

Winning New Business

It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there for interior designers. The competition is fierce and new designers are entering the market every day. We work our socks off, our designs are beautifully considered, and we have happy clients, but for many designers the reality is one of alternating feast and famine, and sometimes it can feel as though we are being left behind.  Not only do designers have to find new business, they have to convince new clients that they are the right person for the job and then close the deal at a level that makes it financially worth doing. So, what tools do interior designers need to secure new business and how can they be sure they are getting their fair share of the action?   We're joined by Lloyd Princeton from the Design Management Company and Helen Bygraves and Jenny Weiss, the co-founders of the internationally renowned, Hill House Interiors to find out more.  Thanks to our series supporters, John Lewis & Partners Business and Parkside Architectural Tiles.  We are a Wildwood production.    ...
