Expertise: Collaborative Work Environments

Focus - Think - Meet

Trends in office space are changing at an increasing pace - open plan, private, hoteling, third space. Well planned space can simply be explained as three basic types: space to focus, space to think, and space to meet.

Space to Focus
A traditional office with a freestanding desk, credenza, bookshelves, and guest chair is fully functional for a variety of work modes. The use of a modular furniture system allows for a lighter, current feel.

Space to Think
Work, especially creative work, requires thinking time. The simple addition of a comfortable lounge chair, to the more typical office, creates a comfortable and separate space to think.

Space to Meet
The need for collaborative space varies by job description, generation, time of day, and other factors. Collaborative spaces are often in public areas and should be balanced with private workspace.
