5 Ways Covid 19 Is Changing The Future for the Property Industry

5 Ways Covid 19 Is Changing The Future for the Property Industry


by Admin

   As we are isolated in our homes, we become increasingly aware of how our interior spaces affect our moods, ability to work and our physical comfort. We believe that during the current virus situation will impact how we design spaces in the future. Homes, commercial and public places will be drawn from the new awareness of personal self-comfort.  Additionally, we are interested in the science of light, and the physiological and  psychological response people have to lighting. Here are ways that interior design practise will change as a result of today’s quarantine culture.


  1. We’ll merge our virtual and physical environment

Currently, there are primarily physical environments and virtual spaces. Video conferencing is making people more conversant of how they are anticipated, and spaces in the future will be designed with that in mind. Muffled or reverberating sound, harsh or inadequate light will be considerations as we inhabit virtual spaces.


  2. Public places will include universal clues for comfortable social barriers

The personal bubble will increase as during this crucial period, space awareness is important, and going together with members of the public, it creates a norm to establish comfortable social barriers  without being distracting, obvious or non approachable. Goods in stores will be stationed apart from each other in order not to cause a large commotion over one area.

3. Space planning, circulation and programming will include physical distance measures

Amenity spaces in condominiums or apartments will be constructed to intervene from each other. This way in, we observe the comfort zones in social environments that begin to expand, creating a visual shift in how our interiors percolate.

4. The influence of mental and physical health in design will increase tenfold 

The importance of interior design towards mental and physical health will be more extensive than ever. Designs will need to contemplate on how we can assist in mental health through interior environments by adapting lighting, materials, sounds and acoustics. In homes, spaces will become more flexible. We will have to examine what aspects of interior design we can use to conserve the public’s well being, including materials, distancing, physical separation, and interaction with commodities.

5. At the connected economy acclimatizes, offices in residences will no longer be an afterthought 

Residences will no longer have a home office, but a workstation at home. Substantial reconsideration of how we can create a beautiful, practical office will be devised and set up to integrate full time satellite works. This may be burdensome in smaller places, where the office is often just a desk in a corner.
