Currently, three different workplaces are available to people. The first being home, the second being office and the third being a coffee shop or restaurant. The workplace, however, is changing and will continue to change in the future. Different drivers and trends, such as globalisation, technology and demographic shifts are influencing the developments of the future workplace. Companies are working on fourth workplace concepts, in fact the first designs are just entering the market. The shoffice idea is to spread micro office buildings all over the city and combine them with a sharing system, comparable to hot-desking or car-sharing. The offices can be booked with a mobile application, by a group or individuals. The micro shoffice building will be positioned in special places to create a special working experience.
