Modularity

At Next the spaces system components have the ability to be reconfigured allowing them to be used by various employees for different purposes and serve different functions. No space has a clearl function, instead the employee creates the function when they walk in.

Versatiliy

At Next the employees will have the ability to find the right space for their personality. Introverts, extroverts, those just looking for a quiet space or those who want to have fun all can find their spot in the office due to the versatile nature.

Global Design

At Next, just like the shipping containers, employees come from different parts of the world, each bringing a unique perspective based on their experience. The space is designed with inclusive design in mind allowing them to feel comfortable wherever they are.

The Container

It has been used for its physical aesthetic in the design of many offices, as an artistic piece as well as an architectural piece. At, Next the design will use the container symbolically as a metaphor not as a physical element.

Inspiration

The Identity of Next

Concept

Next draws inspiration from the versatility of the shipping containers and how they have stood the test of time by being repurposed as contemporary elements. This design will preserve modernity, tell a story and foresee the future of the workplace. There will be a purpose to repurpose by giving meaning to new elements and having interchangeable spaces. The versatility of Next will be represented throughout the physical spaces as well as through their purpose and the meaning the employees give to these spaces.
