Fast Company: How to Design an Office Workers Want to Return To
Did you know that when it comes to office design, neuroscience research shows there are three people groups? 1) Dandelions: those who can work well in any environment 2) Tulips: people who need a balance of open and private areas; and 3) Orchids: colleagues who need quiet, personalized zones.
This thinking—uncovered through our partnership with NBBJ Fellow Dr. John Medina—is the basis for a new office concept we developed with Fast Company. Designed as a place for people to come into work three days a week, the office provides greater diversity of spaces and inverts a traditional model by making desk areas places for collaboration and enclosed spaces like conference rooms refuges for focus.
