There needs to be room for dialogue to enable people to do their job well. And for dialogue to happen there needs to be space to breathe. A traditional meeting room or desk will not do the job. Bene creates open spaces through community areas that present a stark contrast to the formality of the office and encourage teamwork. PARCS helps to create unconventional office settings that allow people to take a break from their daily routine, and to catch a breath of fresh air. Here, people can recharge their batteries and come together to develop new ideas.
Over the past few years community areas in the office have become just as important as the workplace itself. Today, communication is the oxygen of the modern working world; it is necessary for a company to succeed.
Like parks in big cities, PARCS creates community areas across the office floor that serve as a link and encourage shared use. These areas are a crucial factor in determining quality of life and for shaping encounters. They allow for random as well as planned meetings to take place, for sharing ideas, developing something together, or just pausing for a moment to catch your breath.
PARCS creates room for relaxation, variation and inspiration, or just a nice place to have lunch. The industrial model of an efficient office takes on the characteristics of a social one, where development carries on through continuous collaboration. Nowadays, employees spend less time at their own desk. A denser workplace means that there is more space for community areas. Here, people can choose the right kind of environment for their needs. There is room for communication as well as for having time to yourself, away from the group.
