"During COVID-19, companies allowed employees to work from home (WFH) in order to reduce the risk of infections occurring in the office (Lister). The results were mixed. There are some people who enjoy it, and others who see WFH as a way for no matter how bad the world gets, people are at least still working in a safe environment. However, it needs to be proven that working from home is enjoyable, not forced labor in confinement. As WFH continues for continually longer periods of time, its drawbacks begin to emerge, not only physically, but psychologically as well (Rachel). There is a growing belief that teleworking is about survival rather than development and that it will become a social problem. So far, employees' views on working methods are divided into three camps. One is that they want to return to the office, the other is that they like to work from home, and the third is those who want hybrid solutions that embrace teleworking. The work from home decree allows for a deeper understanding of the different office space requirements of employees. This thesis examines the problems and opportunities presented by this pandemic to build a hybrid office that meets the different requirements of employees both physically and psychologically." --Abstract
