Office design has long been focused around largely outdated productivity models. Cubicles, windowless offices, and frosted windows that blocked out any hint of distraction were de rigeur for decades. Recently, that model has been disrupted and offices are taking new and interesting approaches to designing for productivity.
Now more than ever, employee needs are being prioritized over the needs of the shareholders, the board of directors, or the CEO, because clever managers know that when employees are happy, business thrives.
In Portland, there is a concentration of downtown offices with breathtaking views of Mt Hood, Mt Tabor, and the Willamette River. Those picture windows may have been considered a distraction 30 years ago, but in today’s modern workplace, those views are considered inspirational. Here are a few window treatments we love for Portland offices that do the double duty of showcasing epic views and managing natural light.
These motorized marvels offer a classic silhouette with a modern twist. They can be customized in textiles to complement your existing designs and offer great natural light.
Efficient and versatile, these shades can also be customized in a variety of colors and textures. Their construction makes them perfect for balancing privacy and transparency.
A modern variation of the classic vertical blind affords gentle natural light and an airy atmosphere.
These treatments and more are all currently stocked at Bolliger Window Fashions’ online showroom.
