Architects say their new office space design pays off
from The Orange County Register
Count Tricia Esser, chief executive of the KTGY architecture firm, as a huge advocate of the modern office. Esser isn’t an advocate of open office spaces because of KTGY’s book of business – her firm primarily designs housing and shopping centers. Rather, Esser’s appreciation of these new workplace designs comes from real-life experience. The theory behind the modern, collaborative office space is that a friendlier, open space creates more opportunity for everyday worker interaction, but there’s a bottom-line reality to these alluring offices. As the economy has improved and talented workers become a scarce resource, office space has become part of the retention and recruitment game. Esser says the bump in workplace morale at KTGY was tangible from day one after the move to a new office space – not to mention favorable buzz among industry peers, clients and want-to-be employees.
