These insights about people, process, and place informed the development of this setting.
For people: Inclusive
Because team members share similar work tasks as well as decision-making authority, assigned work points should project equitable levels of comfort and status.
For process: Intuitive and Desirable
The use of soft seating and curvilinear design elements create a perception of relaxed comfort that is consistent with successful collaboration and pleasant social exchanges.
For place: Adaptable
Allowing for customization of shared space—especially with content that relates to shared experiences—promotes a sense of team identity and belonging.
For teams in which authority and skill differentiation levels are low, success depends on a delicate balance of independent work and interdependent decision-making. Their neighborhoods focus on design elements that facilitate a collegial atmosphere.
