The Growing Importance Of Private Spaces In A Modern Office

13 May 2019Dylan Campbell

In the last few years, there has been an increase in the opening of stylish and modern offices. Modern organizations are creating open work spaces with believe it would promote collaboration, creativity, productivity and efficiency at work while keeping the cost of real estate in check. What these organizations need to factor into their office design planning is that most staffs, so as to be contented, productive and motivated, when operating in the open environment, need private places to decompress, think or just to answer a phone call that is private.

As a result, as a manager or office administrator, you need to create an office that provides private spaces; including huddle rooms and phone booths with an open office concept without pushing the real estate cost up.

How to Create Perfect Private Spaces in an Open Office:

To have a perfect private space in your open space, you need to identify the types of private spaces you can have in your office.

One-Person Private Space: Usually known as a phone booth due to what it is used for, it is a place to receive or place a personal phone call.  The outline can be relatively small given that the acoustics are tremendous. These spaces are for general use but not to be occupied for a long period. Your staff will definitely love this. Take note of basic safety codes while designing the space.

The One or Two Person Space: These are private spaces meant for two people at a maximum. Such spaces are meant to allow one or two people focus on an assignment that can be disturbed in the open office. You can enhance it with an audio or video conference call capability.  You might also need to equip such space with small workplace and a charging point to connect a PC or a personal gadget. The ventilation, good lighting and sound acoustics are essential while designing a small space like this in your office.  To prevent such places from becoming source of conflicts, you might need to create some access restrictions like time limit and requirements for using such space.  If you are looking for how this space can work for you, kindly drop a message for Danny’s Desks; a leading office design and furniture consulting firm. With the utilization of their modern tools like 2d&3D office design which allows you to visualize your customized design, they can create an office that have all the needed features and at the same pocket friendly.

Shopping for home office furniture today. Dylan was very helpful and was very understanding of my requirements. Would definitely recommend.
Bought a new office chair for summer. I am a large guy and the chair was rated just above my weight. Sadly the chair began to break and bend. I returned it to Danny's with no receipt but the date and price I paid. Dylan was able to find my order, took the chair for repairs and even gave me a loaner chair. I expected about 1 week turnaround but was surprised it took 3 days. Awesome company and awesome service. You have a customer for life.

The whole process was so neat and tidy without any hiccups and hidden conditions, from the quoting stages to the delivery i was informed of what was happening and the service has been great...
I was extremely sceptical when I initially read Dannys had a 5 star google rating. However after visiting there today and buying a wonderful chair I perhaps think they deserve 6 stars rather than 5.Thanks Marek hope this gets you a pay-rise.

Have just received the delivery of new furniture for a home office. The staff at Danny's Desk were great to deal with, very friendly and helpful and not pushy. Great selection of everything one would need and good prices. Was kept informed regarding the delivery with a call after purchase, a call to confirm the day and time for delivery and a call on the day of prior to actual delivery. Would highly recommend.

I bought one chair more than one year ago, and it’s built with high quality and very comfortable. One thing happened to me recently that again proves this company really cares about it’s customers.I was lodging tax return and couldn’t count my receipt. So I write a letter to a email address listed on their website, asking for help, but not actually expecting a reply as the purchase happened more than one year ago.Amazingly, I got a reply the next morning from one of their staff named Marek (my email is precious evening). I was so grateful with them. I highly recommend this company if you want to buy a chair.
