Millennials continue to influence the direction of office design. They want an open feeling, avoiding any suggestion of the cubicle farms of a previous generation. This includes comfortable enticing communal spaces to connect with coworkers and to be in touch with the broader purpose of the organization. It also means fewer permanent and full height interior partitions.
Good design requires finding a balance between collaboration and concentration. People working in close proximity can easily share ideas, but that openness can interfere with deep thinking and concentration.
High back seating can create a focused area in a larger space for flexible collaboration. Some form of mobile separation can instantly make a semi-private space, along with providing write-on and acoustic surfaces.
Color, flooring, or suspended lighting can be used to designate or separate areas. Sound control becomes an important factor as staff density increases.
