Our solution for Nelsons was to redivide their spaces, placing an emphasis on the socialising and breakout spaces. This new space was separated into 3 zones: Contemplate, Congregate, & Celebrate. By defining 3 zones, we were able to reflect the different characteristics of these spaces through the level of concentration/noise that was appropriate. This simple zoning allowed the staff to select the spaces they felt most at ease in as they adapted to the concept that work is not solely dependent on a desks.
It also invited collaboration and productive team work away from the traditional desk, increasing productivity and staff engagement.
