When approaching the task of designing a new office, we need to remember that designing is not synonymous with decorating. Designing should change employee behavior – not just change aesthetics.
The Three Work Modes
If you examine all of the tasks that happen within a workplace – they should all boil down to one of the following: Focus, Team, and Share.
Focus is an individual work mode that occurs within a primary workspace that supports concentration and reduces interruptions.
