Giuseppe Boscherini & Nikita Mikhailov:
What do you get if you cross an architect with a psychologist?

This week on the SpaceCraft podcast, Dan Moscrop explores the concepts of personality-based working and human-centric workplace design with guests Giuseppe Boscherini, an architect focusing on transformative office environments, and Nikita Mikhailov, an occupational psychologist.

Nikita explains the importance of understanding individual personality differences and the "Big Five" traits impacting how people perceive and interact with their workspace environments. He highlights neuroticism, extroversion, openness, agreeableness and conscientiousness influencing workplace behaviors and preferences.

Giuseppe shares his experience designing for different personality types, creating balanced workplace architecture allowing familiarity and stimulation - drawing parallels from dementia care facilities catering to varying needs through innovative spatial solutions.

Together they explore using personality assessments and data to inform human-centric design processes, adapting workspaces to individual employee preferences for control, self-expression and comfort through agile branded workspace strategies.

The conversation highlights integrating disciplines like psychology and architecture to develop innovative, personalized workplace solutions considering employees' diverse needs and personality-driven spatial experiences.

Giuseppe and Nikita emphasize a collaborative, consensual approach to transformative office design empowering employees through adaptive branded environments and human-centric workspace strategies accommodating individuality.
