How much office space do you actually need?
As a rule of thumb, businesses require approximately 10 square metres of gross space per staff member, inclusive of communal areas, for a modern open-plan office. Meaning, if you have 5 staff you should be looking for an office of around 50 square metres (5 x 10sqm).
However in 2021, things now look a little different as many staff are now working a portion of their hours from home. When looking at your floor plan, the breadth of collaboration between staff also needs to be a consideration- as more space is required for break-out rooms and meeting areas to facilitate group meetings.
