Every human body requires a minimum of 7-9 hours of sleep for overall health, well-being, and productivity. But unfortunately, sleeping has become a luxury.
In fact, so many people aren’t getting enough sleep, that CDC declared it as a public health emergency. 40% of employees experience sleep loss in the US, an overworked Brit doesn’t sleep once a week and the epidemic is so serious in Japan that workers sometimes die due to lack of sleep. Lack of sleep leads to health problems, body fatigue and lack of efficiency
Modern work schedules often force us to override our normal sleep patterns with more than 43% of workers feeling regularly sleep-deprived. Even if offices mobilize employees to take rest by designing spaces, the perception of sacrificing one’s personal need for benefit of the company is considered monetary rewarding.
The challenge is to design a meditation and power nap studio for 100 people. While primarily it provides an opportunity for people to nap, at other hours it will act as a meditation hub where classes in regards will be held.
