Teaming Neighborhoods

Teaming neighborhoods along the
perimeter of the main street
Integrated Office Concepts
Pittsburgh, PA


Groups of teams clustered around the main thoroughfare within an office define team identity and provide privacy. These neighborhoods are accessible to encourage collaboration between members and teams.


"By nature, work teams and work groups are multi-functional. Having a proper work environment" from the perspective of architecture, furniture and equipment "is crucial to the success of a work team or work group.", (Facilities Programs, 1993, p. 10). Team layout in an office is dependent upon the team type as well as individual team requirements. Each teaming neighborhood should be equipped with the tools necessary to be successful.
