Expanse

A Modular, Adaptable Work Space

This project originated with a brief from the RSA (Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts), specifically that of designing a future workplace. Research was conducted into current working environments and how to better engage people in the workplace to work efficiently, collaboratively and healthily. Expanse is at its base a small building designed to be linked with many others, either directly side by side, stacked, or connected with tension fabric spaces. The network exists not just from the real world of connected buildings but also a virtual network connecting all the buildings with integrated technology. With the final aim being that Expanse structures and groupings would be spread across cities and country, linked via its network, enabling adaptive, collaborative work to take place in a unique environment that the occupants define.
