How would you define the ideal work space?
- Large windows
- Excellent views
- Great parking
- Quality finish
- Superb furniture
- Lavatories finished in marble
- A place you just love to work in
Those are good qualities but clearly not edgy. Probably that’s why the world’s most sustainable building is named “The Egde“. And what is it exactly that makes this building “edgy”.
- A smartphone app consults your schedule for the day and figures out what kind of workspace you’ll need, be it a sitting desk, standing desk, meeting room, or so-called concentration room. No one has an assigned seat — the concept is called “hot desking.”
- When you pull into the garage, a camera analyzes a photo of your license plate to make sure it’s really you, and then raises the gate. The app guides you to an available parking spot.
- Once you arrive at your workspace, the app adjusts the light and temperature settings based on your preferences, which it remembers.
- The building is designed to feel just like the outdoors, through variations in heat and air currents. Every workspace is within 23 feet of a window, but you won’t get distracted by the sounds of the nearby highway and trains, since the specially designed roof mutes the noise.
- When it’s time for a break, you can head to one of the coffee bars, equipped with espresso machines that remember how you take your coffee.
- If you’re staying late at night, you’ll notice a small robot patrolling the grounds. If an alarm goes off, the robot’s camera can identify the intruder or alert security that it was a false alarm.
Now , that’s “edgy”.
