Not all workspaces are the same. Not all clients are the same either. Therefore, workspace design is far from being straightforward. The speaker will provide a checklist covering the relevant questions to be posed to clients, and observations that help understand how the space is to be used. Reference will be made to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, the visual tasks to be performed in the space, the emotional and biological effects to be achieved, and energy efficiency issues. Examples will be shown of realised projects based on the process described.
