Collaborative work environment has been challenged by its down sides; lacking privacy and physical noise that make employees hard to concentrate on tasks.
However, there are critical pros in collaborative work space because it can provides and supports various tasks activities while giving open environment for team-working. Especially, when the companies need various tasks range from private paperwork to team-based projects which, demanding different functional spaces [ brainstorming, meeting room, interview space etc.] keeping open plan working space is still important.
Thus, compensating the down sides of open working space, providing complete privacy can be the solution. Giving solitude to employees can boost work efficiency and productivity for decision making and psychological comfort for them. So, I would like to suggest an office space that has two extreme work environment. Solitude and togetherness.
The project mainly concentrated on making clear boundary of singular pods which can be used as their personal locker and simple working space for every employees and creating various cooperative working areas including working station and group activities space when its in need for workers.
