Changing work habits and the growing popularity of coworking spaces had residential developers and building owners take notice. There is a growing number of high-end residential projects that are adding workspaces as their latest and most sought-after “amenity.” This is a logical next step in this evolution of flexible offices.
Eitherland’s Outdoor Workspaces bring together the wellness benefits from being in nature with the live-work trend. More and more people are working from home or within the same geographic location, so it makes sense to provide them with environments that support collaboration, focus and innovation.
Eitherland’s elegant, immersive and technologically-advanced workspaces not only boost perceived value of the building and help to attract younger, affluent residents; they have also been designed with the idea of generating stable ancillary income. Thanks to Eitherland’s App and digital signage solutions, each structure can be used as a venue for corporate events and business meetings or can be transformed into a coworking space.
Businesses now require multi-disciplinary teams to address complex problems in a global context, often working remotely. At the same time, organizations are searching and fighting for the next generation of leaders who look at work as an opportunity for inner growth rather than just a way to make a living. Traditional office spaces are simply not flexible enough to evolve with the technology and emerging expectations of their employees.
According to the Premier’s Workplace Wellbeing survey, 54% of workers feel that they don’t have private spaces where they can go at work, while 45% of people think their business actively fails to promote collaborative work.
Eitherland helps to bridge this gap by creating the “third space” that promotes both focused work and collaboration, while connecting employees to natural light and fresh air throughout the day. It’s so powerful, many companies offer it as a work benefit.
What’s more, Eitherland structures are complementary to any office space and help to leverage underused outdoor real estate. Modular construction ensures that the outdoor offices can be installed quickly, seamlessly and without disturbing the existing building, or more importantly, its occupants.
“Traveling for business or pleasure?” is becoming a question of the past as the swiftly growing trend of “bleisure” travel creates new opportunities for hoteliers to innovate and offer new experiences that cater to their guests’ productive, wellness-oriented, and inspiring lifestyle.
In the world where work is no longer bound to a certain location, business travelers, entrepreneurs and corporate employees look for the best workplace experiences, not an office space.
Eitherland’s flexible, elegant, leading-edge spaces offer the same, if not greater, level of comfort and technology guests expect when working indoors, plus the health benefits of spending more time in nature. Designed around workplace activities and services, Eitherland Outdoor Work. Lounges range from yoga rooms to private Outdoor Meeting Spaces. They are also strategic revenue earners for hoteliers looking to help to differentiate their business offering, enter into the coworking market and maximize their outdoor real estate.
Academic environments and college campuses largely set the bar for the future of work. This is why many forward-thinking universities feel it is highly important to break down campus silos and offer environments that will be relevant to the workplace dynamics.
On the other hand, students expect their educational opportunities to fit their lifestyles, with values such as wellbeing and flexible learning taking the main stage.
Eitherland’s outdoor solutions have been created to foster interdisciplinary knowledge sharing, facilitate personal communication, boost creative thinking and simply provide students freedom to work and study beyond traditional classrooms. There is also some serious scientific evidence that links natural environments to improved information recall, creative problem-solving, reduced stress and a greater feeling of well-being — which in turn lead to better grades and happier students.
Public spaces, such as plazas, squares and parks, have long been considered key assets in supporting the economic vitality of a city and the wellness of its residents. As our lives become entwined in an increasingly “connected” society, more people are looking for ways to reconnect with nature and spend time outdoors. The upside of digital progress lies in the increased freedom we now have when it comes to how, when and where we work.
Eitherland’s Outdoor Workplace solutions can be used to create a “third space” between office and home, aimed at promoting focus, inspiration and integration. We believe that these “third spaces” are becoming strategic in attracting creative talent, start-up accelerators and business tourists. When managed correctly, they also turn into powerful tools to generate revenue within the community and trigger positive growth in securing capital.
Eitherland structures are equipped with the latest technologies to offer the same seamless work experience of the best indoor coworking spaces. These are not only potential outdoor work hubs, but also venues that can be rented out for corporate and sponsored events, as well as for academic use. This, in turn, contributes to the wellness of residents, tourism growth and the local and state community.
Over the past few years, more retailers have realized that there is rising consumer demand for more things to do rather than things to buy. Many forward-thinking retailers evolved into mixed-use hubs, curated around entertainment, shopping and work. It makes perfect sense, as retail spaces can become a natural extension of the “flexible work” revolution.
Eitherland’s hyper-curated workplace environments strive to take this revolution even further, transforming outdoor public spaces and indoor transit areas into sought-out destinations. They also become both viable and strategic when it comes to attracting young talent, creating spaces that foster wellness, collaboration, and creativity, and activating new revenue streams.
Eitherland’s elegant, modular design, ease of installation and advanced yet seamless technological experience combine the best of corporate and business amenities with inspiring and dynamic retail environments.
The growing trend of offering people “space as an experience” is especially true for the conference industry. The new generation of event attendees simply looks at space differently, with convention centers increasingly hosting smaller breakout sessions, after-hours events, and more casual, impromptu meetings.
Eitherland Outdoor Workplaces set the bar for the future of work and collaboration by embodying wellness, high-quality design and thoughtful technology within an elegant form. Featuring everything from biophillic lighting to wireless charging, Eitherland extends the most in-demand services (and revenue models) to often underutilized outdoor spaces.
The iconic modular design, ease of installation and health benefits of Eitherland structures make them easy to rent as separate venues or transform into coworking spaces before, during or after events.
For many digital natives, work is not a place. It’s something you do. It’s about people shaping their jobs in ways that fit with their daily lives and work environments that inspire meaningful, creative work.
Coworking spaces first embraced a flexible work revolution, bringing digital nomads and creative start-ups under one roof and expanding the concept of work beyond a traditional office space. As a natural evolution of the underlying values of coworking, Eitherland moves it into the outdoor space.
Our structures are equipped with all the latest technologies and comforts of the indoor offices, yet they are designed around wellbeing, new work dynamics and freedom to switch from group activities to focused, solo work.
We started with the vision of encouraging more people to take their work outside, reconnect with nature and boost a sense of wellbeing and purpose-driven productivity. Then we designed solutions that are durable, easy to install, have minimal environmental impact and allow us to leverage outdoor real estate without disrupting existing workspaces.
