Sleek contemporary workstations (each 2.4 m wide) seat staff in teams of four with low-glass dividers to maximize interaction. A mix of open and closed breakout areas nearby allow for conference calls and meetings. Neighborhoods defined by color provide definition within the overall space. Staff often have working sessions in the Reception/ Cafe/ Patio areas to drive the creative spirit.
