The report, prepared for the BCO by Hawkins Brown Architects, looks at the historical evolution of reception design and how technology, mobility and a changing work culture are transforming the front of house area into a multifunctional space. The interface between the office and public is getting more sophisticated and sees a space that embraces hospitality services, Wi-Fi enabled collaborative zones and workstations.

This trend creates operational challenges such as access control but also offers new opportunities to increase the visibility of the company as well as creating a transitional space that extends the public realm into the workplace.

Join us for an enlightening evening and to enjoy drinks and networking with your fellow BCO members and industry peers.

This event is only available to members of BCO.
