Within the team space, private workstations provide a sense of ownership.

A sense of personal space provides employees with the opportunity to balance privacy with interaction.


It is important in a dynamic teaming environment to provide personal work areas or zones for employees who seek privacy, (Mudgett, 2000). Since no one works in a team all day (Brill, 1998), these areas provide refuge from team activities and foster thoughtful, concentrated work. Workers spend between 60%-80% of their time at individual workstations and it is important to recognize that these areas remain the primary spatial office tool (Brill, 1998)
