The offices and startup subculture communities of the future
Megnote Tessema

As businesses embrace new digital technology and continue to modernise their facilities, office environments are changing at a fast pace. Whatever space you and your team work from, be it your own offices or a shared workspace/ technology startup subculture community, it is becoming increasingly important to have access to the latest technology.

Technology can encourage a more integrated work-life balance and Millennials have high expectations when it comes to their office space.  Various kinds of smart features are becoming more common and this trend will most certainly continue in the future. It seems logical that the workplaces of tomorrow will be more comfortable, eco-friendly and task-oriented.

Let’s look at a list of features that could be the hallmarks of the future work space:


Long-distance collaboration

Powerful virtual conferencing and telepresence tools are already a vital part of daily operations for many decentralised business systems, but in the future the equipment for meetings will likely become standard and possibly even be integrated into buildings.

Some industry experts predict that in order to facilitate the modern day requirements for a flexible workforce, telepresence robots may become commonplace, allowing individuals to interact virtually with their team.

Goldman Sachs have predicted that by 2025, VR and AR will grow to a $80 billion marketplace, we eagerly await the workplace applications which are likely to emerge over the next 10 years; teamwork will be even more fun with these high-tech toys!


Healthy environment

It’s a well known fact that healthy individuals work better and have less sick days, so improving the environmental quality of the workplace is fast becoming a focus for many businesses. Systems like Asset Mapping already have the capability to analyse air quality in real time, helping to safeguard the health of team members.

Some modern architects understand the need to introduce nature into the working environment, meaning it is likely that office buildings of the future may have more space available outside. Additionally, more offices are introducing plants and living walls into indoor spaces as they are recognised to reduce stress, increase productivity, reduce sickness, help clear the air and generally make workspaces more attractive.


Motion-activated tools

Motion sensor technology is already widely used, but for now professional software doesn’t typically support this kind of an interface. That might change soon, as an entire generation grows up accustomed to touch screens and motion commands.


Minimal energy consumption

’Living Buildings’ are eco-friendly, self-sufficient structures that ‘give more than they take’, with some impressive solutions emerging, office buildings of the future are likely to be influenced by them.

Japan has recently launched its first net-zero office building that produces more renewable energy than it consumes. The innovative facility is powered using 320 solar panels that are installed on its roof. It also includes other eco-technology such as a hybrid air-conditioning system.

Awareness that natural resources are a finite quantity is necessitating rational expenditure of energy. Business premises of the future will likely be optimised to save energy at every step, with lights that turn off automatically when you leave the room and programmed heating systems that react to changes of external temperature.


3D printed Office Buildings

The “Office of the Future” is the world’s first inhabited 3D printed office building and was constructed in Dubai during 2016. The 2600-square-foot office took only 17 days to print and was installed in 2. Owing to the innovative 3D printing technique, the team behind the project estimate the labor cost was half of a conventional build of the same size.

Construction firm Cazza is currently working on a project to build the world’s first 3D skyscraper, which will be erected in the United Arab Emirates. Owing to the success of these recent projects, Emirates alone predicts it will use 3D printing in upto 25% of its buildings by 2030.


As technology continues to improve our environments at such a rapid pace, it’s almost impossible to predict exactly how far office buildings will develop over the next 10 years. However, the  ‘traditional’ office space is quickly coming under pressure to adapt, meaning office landlords will need to modernise their spaces to stay relevant. Asset Mapping helps to improve the environment inside buildings by connecting legacy systems and new IoT sensors to extend the life of assets.
