A visual summary of the Knoll Research papater on Implementing Integrated Work to Create a Dynamic Workplace. The top / main diagram shows the four primary types of spaces that should be present in a well designed Integrated Workplace: Focus Space, Share Space, Team Space and Social Space.
I wrote about the importance of Focus Space in 2013 – one size (or type) does not fit all. I think of Shared spaces as labs and Team spaces as conference or meting spaces. Social Space is the one that usually gets overlooked or cut in the project budget, but in my experience, can add value beyond the workplace and greatly increase employee satisfaction. I experienced this in 2015 while on assignment at Google X and was able to meet Sergey Brin at a Social Space.
