When planning a new office, designers and their clients are faced with many challenges and questions. They have to think about practical issues such as spatial needs, proximity relations, IT infrastructure and furniture, but also more strategic issues such as occupancy costs, effectiveness of the working environment, and environmental impact. What kind of office design best suits the working processes and culture of the organisation? Should all employees have their own workstation or are they going to share desks? 'Planning Office Spaces' aims to help solve these problems, looking at each of these issues in turn and showing the alternatives on offer and what the advantages and disadvantages are.
