WITH more than a third of the workforce set to be working from home in ten years' time, there will be growth in neighbourhood support centres that will offer services which most households couldn't support on their own.

From teleconferencing suites to full art departments, these new centres will form part of the chain of campus experiences which the new breed of home-workers will require when they're away from their desks.

In the traditional landscape of corporate culture, there will be a toppling of icons and an end to extravagant status symbols as most companies downscale and abandon major office complexes, in favour of smaller sites or several satellite offices.

Given that so many people will have cashed out and started a microbusiness, everything will be niche-driven as thousands of upstart companies carve up the marketplace.
