No matter whether the coming of spring has awoken your green thumb, or you’ve jumped onto the eco-hipster bandwagon, we’d like to offer you an original way to minimize at least part of the waste you generate.

Just imagine. You’re not shivering with cold because your workmate turned on the AC. The air in the meeting room isn’t stuffy, and the light in the kitchen doesn’t burn your eyes.

Take a look at winners of the 4th year of the competition called "Zasedačka roku" (Meeting Room of the Year 2017) and managed by CBRE. More than 90 companies take part in the "tournament" and their offices were judged by a professional jury and by voting of people as well. "This year’s winners of all categories are such inspirations for other businesses not only in terms of the representational nature of their premises, but also in their ability to speak beyond the doors of their office," said Eva Jiřičná (AI-Design), probably the best living architect from the Czech Republic and the head of jury.
More than 300 000 sqm of new office space is being constructed in Prague, according to CBRE study. Almost two thirds of it will be available in 2018. So let´s have a look at some of the new projects.

Ten people from a variety of fields spoke with us about their “office visions for 2018.”
