WORK AS A DESTINATION
The perception of work is changing. It’s no longer about trying to balance work and free time, career and family, or responsibilities and life purpose. Because, essentially, there is no such thing as work-life balance. It’s all life. And the time we spend working makes up a third of that life.
We’ve created Eitherland as a way to provide people with meaningful outdoor work places that are designed to promote creativity, focus, well-being, and collaboration.
GO WORK OUTSIDE!
The origin of the world “office” means “performance of a task,” not “a physical indoor space.” So why should where and how we work be confined by four walls?
Eitherland is an immersive work philosophy extended to an outdoor space. It combines the health benefits of being in nature with the latest digital technology, biophilic design, ergonomics, science, and the psychological principles behind teamwork, creativity, focus, innovation, and the state of “flow.” We create work spaces that drive value and serve as long-term investments in people’s well-being, satisfaction, and productivity.
Just like our lifestyle, modern-day work is flexible, fluid, and multifaceted. We are expected to quickly switch from
creative thinking to planning, and then to meetings and group collaboration, yet our current workplace environment stays the same.
The underlying belief behind each of Eitherland’s structures is that the quality of work life matters and that there
is no one-design-fits-all when it comes to engagement or inspiration. Different structures, layouts, textures, and finishes are always tailored
to create a work “ecosystem” that is as unique as the space, brand DNA or talent itself.
Spending time in nature will make you less stressed out, more intuitive and creative.

Based on classical ideals of order, symmetry, and beauty, Renaissance gardens were the first outdoor spaces specifically created for contemplation and creative work as much as for social collaboration and networking.
Eitherland takes its inspiration from these beautiful gardens, following the same principles of elegance, proportion, and space flow.
THE NATURE OF THE PLACE
According to Harvard Business Review, the number one office perk is “natural light,” and the second is fresh air. Nature plays an essential role in how well we feel and how well we work, so many architects and interior designers have started to introduce plants and biophilic elements into indoor office environments.
Here comes the ingenious part: the best way to get plenty of natural light and fresh air and get exposed to natural elements is not by building bigger windows and introducing green walls to the office space. It’s by leveraging existing outdoor spaces and taking your work outside. Revolutionary, right?
We believe that the best technological experience is the one you don’t have to think about—when everything is connected, intuitive, and just works. Outdoor environments require the same—if not greater—level of thought and detail that go into the creation of indoor office solutions.
We’ve partnered with the leading tech companies to create outdoor workplace technologies that are safe, efficient, and reliable. We have even gone a step further, designing a work experience around the humans who use it—no learning curve needed, no contracts to sign, no apps to install. It just works.

THE FUTURE OF WORK
We believe that space and culture are vital ingredients of productivity, empowerment, and well-being. We’re focused on helping businesses, university campuses, startups, co-working spaces, hotels, resorts, and municipalities to leverage their outdoor spaces by creating immersive work environments.
