As an interior design company in Dubai with years of experience designing office, we have created various workspaces for different needs. The space you work in depends on your job function, the company culture and how people collaborate. It’s pretty important for each space to be designed for comfort, productivity, creativity and morale. So, what are the most common types of workspaces you might find in a modern office? Let us take a look at the top 5.
The Collaboration Space
Collaborative work mostly takes place in either meeting rooms, auditoriums, conference halls or small huddle rooms. It all depends on the size of the team and their place on the office hierarchy. These spaces are a totally essential part of any typical office interior design project, but since their functions are more-or-less the same, their alternating sizes need to be carefully checked in order to tell the difference.
Small Rooms for The Individual
There are some people who find it extremely hard to work in crowded, noisy spaces, which is why every office should have some individual rooms where these people can work in peace. They don’t have to be completely closed off from the rest of the office area – a simple glass wall partition can definitely do the trick – but to create a solitary environment is necessary in such situations.
The Loner Desk
We all know that one person who simply likes to immerse themselves in their work without a heed to their surroundings. Their workspace is their sanctuary, and therefore, the furniture must be ergonomic and comfortable enough to make their experience top-notch. These desks can be individual workstations with their own nook within the whole layout.
Specialized workstations include the customized or typical workstation layout that makes up a major part of the office interior design aesthetic. There are so many different variations of their designs, and so many aspects you can personally alter in order to make them more comfortable for the employees. System furniture is very in-demand these days, which is a good alternative for typical workstations.
For someone who’s decidedly higher on the food chain, the office interior design has to be sufficiently accommodating. You cannot pile them in with the rest of the employees and call it a day. These people have their own roles to play – board members and investors to entertain – therefore, the executive spaces have to be designed in a rather upscale way. The ambiance has to be elegant, high-end yet understated with privacy at the same time.
