Make any space more inviting and productive, even higher-traffic areas. Create a casual space for conversation and the occasional meeting. Transform a utilitarian lobby into a warm, welcoming space for visitors. Furnish an ancillary space with sofas and other soft seating choices to encourage relaxation and social exchange.
Welcoming areas are now versatile and dynamic spaces used for impromptu meetings, supporting collaboration between coworkers, or as a place to hold a small group meeting instead of reserving a private space.
Think lounge areas, atriums, and coffee bars. These are typically larger areas within a space where people naturally migrate throughout the day to socialize and collaborate. Every space has unique characteristics. Well-planned layouts utilize them all. When designed correctly, these are great change-of-pace spaces that invite interaction and provide a well deserved break from heads down concentration.
