Working from Home
At Method Studio Architects, working from home has quickly become the new normal in 2021, along with so many other companies. We are fortunate to have an office in the beautiful surroundings of Hylands Park and this has been a great place to work, with effecitve social distancing measures, as various restrictions have been in place. With all of this going on our team have endeavoured to find a sense of normality during what is a tough time for many.
The majority of our team are now working remotely and have found new ways to keep active and break up the day to prevent working from home from becoming a monotonous experience. Some of us have been walking or running during lunch to help encourage a healthy break in the day. We all start every day with a team call, not necessarily to discuss work but to help keep everyone in contact and minimise the social impact of not being in the office. Throughout the day we regularly use video calls to discuss projects. This keeps projects running smoothly and allows us to design and collaborate on ideas in the best way we can, whilst out of the office.
Our initial design meeting and survey are still done at your property in person, which helps keep a personal connection between the design team and our clients, rather than just always being a face on a screen. But don't worry, our team always strictly adheres to Covid-19 safety guidelines when meetings are required. Throughout the design process we set up video calls with clients to discuss new ideas and how their project is progressing. This has become a handy tool to help involve clients throughout the design phase and has become a standard part of our process throughout Stage 1.
