Three communal spaces that should never be without art

Art is an essential and incredibly impactful tool when it comes to creating unforgettable buildings that enhance well-being and leave people feeling cared for. As people prepare to return to the office, many of us are looking to make our buildings as welcoming and inspiring as possible. Here are three types of spaces you should consider hanging art in to take you office to the next level.



Art is an absolute must for your building’s reception. This is the first space every single person sets foot in and it’s your opportunity to make a big and lasting impression. This space sets the tone for the rest of your visitors’ experience and art can take a space from plain and clinical to inspiring and full of personality.

Break Out Spaces


Art naturally brings people together and it provides an inclusive point of discussion that everyone can get involved with. A study carried out by the University of Westminster demonstrated that employees who spent a lunch beak looking at art experienced large reductions of cortisol (the hormone that relates to stress). By displaying art in your communal break out spaces, you’ll invite people to relax, open up and share their thoughts with one another.

Collaborative Spaces


Exhibiting art in collaborative areas is a great way to inject energy into the space. Studies carried out at Exeter University demonstrated that people can be up to 32% more productive in offices that contain art and plants plus 64% of the 800 participants in a recent survey stated that art increased and inspired creativity at work.
