New report: Workspace of tomorrow. What could a hybrid office look like?
The report published by Nowy Styl is not a futuristic vision of the future, but a collection of practical solutions for office arrangement, designed to match the actual needs of an office of tomorrow. Remote work? Hybrid work? How will a change in work style impact the layout and functionality of the offices?
It’s been one year since we switched to the new reality, where a home becomes your office and an office is suddenly your home. Some companies continue to operate remotely and some invited their employees to return to the offices in various forms and to a different extent. The hybrid model, which involves a combination of office and remote work, is becoming increasingly popular these days. And it’s for the companies that have opted for (or are considering) the hybrid model that we came up with the Communication Hub. It is a sample modern meeting place, which facilitates the exchange of knowledge and supports diverse needs of its users.
Communication Hub responds to all those needs that became the most pronounced during the pandemic – most employees admit they miss face to face meetings as opposed to talking to the computer screen.
In the report titled Workspace of tomorrow:
- Do we need offices?

The future is hybrid working
Hybrid working is becoming increasingly popular. World-famous giants, such as Google, Facebook or Dell, announce this is exactly how they see their nearest future in the context of workplace organisation.
Hybrid work comprises working in the office and remote work – performed from home or another place of your choice.
Key facts about hybrid working:
- the office as a place for meetings and employee interaction,
- partial home-working as standard,
- place of work dependant on the type of activity performer at a given moment.
According to the research: 61% of employers will offer their employees a possibility of working according to the hybrid model.
A vast majority of office employees would like to combine working in the office with working remotely. A flexible approach to working hours and the place of work is greatly appreciated.
The hybrid working model will definitely impact the office space as we know it. In the Communication Hub model most of the administrative work is done remotely. The office is a place for meetings and teamwork. This means the proportions of office space need to change – there will be fewer traditional workstations and more meeting places and settings that facilitate collaboration.
The Communication Hub is an office model that has been suggested by Nowy Styl, an experienced expert and partner in arranging space for many companies around the world. It is an office which constitutes a platform for communication and a space for various types of meetings, including remote ones, which are numerous in the hybrid model. And finally, it is a collection of suggestions for arranging office interiors on the basis of which a unique design is created, that is suited to the needs and expectations of “an organisation of tomorrow”.
Communication Hub: the office of a company following the hybrid model is a place for meeting, exchanging ideas and building interpersonal relations.
