Relaxation Space for Employees at Netlife Research

This next office space is all about reflection and creativity. Eriksen Skajaa Architects have taken on a great project for the user-experience consultancy firm Netlife Research. The Norwegian architects designed some birch veneer-clad rooms that are punctures on every side by arched doorways, windows and recesses.

Inspired by a monastery garden, the architects designed a brick and wood building partition in the center of a wide open space that features niches for plants and privacy, and windows for air circulation. One of the niches outside contains a bench to sit and read or relax. Everything about it exudes calm and tranquility, a place that sometimes is extremely needed at an office.

The Monastery is a great place that stands out due to its simple design, intriguing position and its use. It presents a soft, neutral color palette that gives it the feeling of a bright, airy space. More and more companies should take this as an example and try to fit a place for relaxation in their designs, because the work of their employees will grow and they will have better results.
