Public Spaces that Tell a Story

Public Spaces
Integrated Office Concepts
Pittsburgh, PA


The public spaces within an office should communicate the company story. These areas are visited by clients and guests and should reflect the corporate philosophies and goals by being an extension of the overall image portrayed by the company.


The corporate image should be an outcome of the company's work philosophy and goals. (Becker & Steele, 1995, p. 30). The public spaces within an office environment should communicate these philosophies and goals by clearly defining the company in terms of how the organization functions. These spaces should be integral elements in the overall design concept and be reflective of the company's structure and organization.
