As we begin to carefully emerge from self-isolation, we are beginning to realize the impact of the Coronavirus in our lives moving forward. We cannot forget why we implemented these measures in the first place: not to overwhelm the healthcare system, to protects our frontline workers, to shield the immune-compromised and the vulnerable.

As designers and architects , we spend a large portion of our day working with one another and our clients (primarily in person), collaborating on projects. No matter what phase of a project, we are trying to achieve a collective goal through our interactions by building trust, common bonds and productive relationships.
Collaboration in the workplace is crucial, whether it is working together brainstorming for creative solutions or offering critical perspectives, it is ultimately offering value to all team members by providing a space to communicate ideas. Workplace data has proven that a proper balance between focus and collaborative spaces leads to high performance, increased efficiencies and innovation in an office environment. Collaboration makes us feel good at what we do.
