// Pandemic and Meaning of a Home:
"Orphaned Office "
Social isolation measures introduced to stop the spread of COVID-19 have de-centralised the workplace. A lot of people who would normally work in an office are now working from home.
Many companies may opt to move to a more flexible working arrangement full time, which would reduce the amount of physical office space they need. If that happens, a lot of existing office buildings in CBDs across the world could stand empty and un-used.
These “orphaned” offices present an opportunity to be repurposed to address the needs of the Post-COVID society.
