Space Design Resources

360 Magazine Steelcase

360 Magazine As you’re designing your shared/collaborative space (whether or not it’s a coworking space), the first step is to get very clear on the requirements of the space in terms of layouts and types of workspaces. This is one of the easiest and most common made mistakes. Form follows function. Make sure you know your mix of collabortive vs. private spaces, open plan seating vs. meeting rooms, nooks and lounges and community gathering areas. Whether you’re new to these concepts or you’re a designer, the 360 Magazine is always on the leading edge of exploring insights into top workplace design trends.
