Whilst it seems as lighting designers are constantly developing designs that will allow for future tenants to modularise their space. But is this really an effective way to work in the 21st century? Wall or No Walls that is the question?
Tear Down the Walls For the most part, walls are unnecessary in an office environment. Most offices are built with walls prioritized, and with the most important people in the space having four walls of their own. Most employees don't have walls, so they're forced to rely on artificial cubicle walls to get all their wall needs. The problem with walls is that they stifle interaction. They make work a sterile, silent, individual place rather than an opportunity for teamwork and collaboration. If you have the ability, tear down the walls in your office in whatever form they take. Let your employees set their own boundaries, and create an open, interactive atmosphere for anyone who wants it. Your team will work together more closely and they'll be happier as a result.
