How we work is evolving.
Where we work should, too.
As work evolves the definition of workplace is no longer confined within four walls. By activating outdoor space to attract, retain, and sustain the best employees, businesses can enhance corporate culture, solidify brand, and drive innovation. Landscape Forms provides the building blocks to create productive, inspired workspaces outside that amplify the performance of people, teams, and enterprise.
Ironically, as technology frees us up from working in a set location, it puts more pressure on physical workspace to attract, retain, and sustain the best workforce.
Work Happens Everywhere
Promote Well-being
Promote well-being by connecting employees to natural light, fresh air, and nature throughout the work day to create a sense of belonging, encourage personal mindfulness, and foster rejuvenation.
Enhance Work Experiences
Enhance work experiences by providing open, thriving, and natural settings that facilitate informal peer-to-peer connections. These nuture a sense of fulfillment by fostering daily relationship building interactions that enrich professional development, accelerate personal growth, and strengthen work-life integration.
Stimulate Innovation
Stimulate intellectual curiosity, creativity, and exploration essential to innovation by providing a palette of settings that enable connection and interaction with nature.
Build Culture
Build culture by providing a variety of outdoor work settings that nurture healthy interpersonal work relationships, increase productivity, and empower innovation. This leads to a heightened sense of engagement, improved morale, and enhanced sense of accomplishment for employees.
We believe that a connection to nature and others can ignite healthier and more stimulating work environments. By giving employees what they need most: access to each other, the right tools and technologies, and places that offer inspiration, choice, and control; we can extend workplace outdoors. To enable this, Landscape Forms has created a series of application thought starters incorporating our portfolio or site furnishing, architectural, technology, and lighting elements.
Architects, designers, facility managers, and landscape architects can make a significant contribution to daily work life by leveraging these strategies to fully engage the outdoor workplace.
