Technology allows us to be mobile and move around the office and even work remotely. Multiple generations working together under one roof with diverse working styles, have completely changed the way an office flows and interacts. Designing office workzones is now becoming the solution and norm with the ever evolving office.

Primary Zone  – This is an employee’s individual personalized space. It can be a closed office, workstation/cubicle or open benching unit. It is the space an employee hangs his/her hat and calls home. Many companies allow the employee to make it their own by hanging artwork, family pictures and adding personal objects. This zone helps with a sense of belonging.

Meeting ZoneConference rooms are designed for customer visits, presentations and are used for specific large internal group meetings. Huddle and closed break out rooms are used for smaller meetings and quick breakout sessions

Quiet Zone – Phone rooms, think pods, quiet nook and library offices. These are areas that are dedicated to private use and where a higher level of concentration is needed.
