Waterfront and sea view office spaces that never go out of fashion

Waterfront and sea view office spaces that never go out of fashion

Steen Uno
Water views never go out of style. Waterfront-located office leases are among the most sought-after and expensive. Nevertheless, demands for offices at the harbour and closest to waterfront are most significant.

Office workplaces with a view of the water inspire and increase employee well-being and efficiency. Waterfront offices usually have plenty of natural light, which benefits employees' physical and mental health.

This is how main headlines typically sound when a company prioritizes moving into a sought-after high-end office tenancy at the harbour or waterfront.

Other significant motivational factors can be companies' ambitions to strengthen their brand and prestige, just as spectacular waterfront offices can help to attract and retain top talent and valuable employees. 

The positive atmosphere and spirit in a beautifully situated and inspiring office environment by the water are, in short, created to boost employees' work satisfaction, productivity, and shared well-being.

Water inspires

"Studies show how employees with access to natural light and a direct view of nature and water perform happier and are more productive," design and interior design experts point out.

"A desk with a free view to harbour and waterfront and the bright natural light from the water cannot help but have a refreshing, calming, uplifting and inspiring effect on both the individual employee and the shared social working spirits."
