A good breakout space design can also reduce delays in projects and decision-making due to meeting rooms not being available when needed.
A GOOD BREAKOUT SPACE DESIGN WILL CREATE A MULTI-FUNCTIONAL AREA USED FOR INFORMAL MEETINGS AND COLLABORATIVE WORK.
Breakout Space design has often been placing some wacky soft seating and bean bags in some otherwise dead space. The Breakout Space is often thought of as just a space for staff to take a break, relax and recharge their batteries. However as new work practices gather pace it is becoming an increasingly important area. The aim of a good breakout space is to create a multi-functional area that can be used for informal meetings and collaborative work.
THE OFFICE BREAKOUT SPACE SHOULD BE A VALUABLE WORK AREA
The term ‘breakout space’ is really a misnomer. It suggests to staff and management that if they are seen there they are assumed to be having a break. The fact is that, with the right technology and environment, a breakout space will become an invaluable work area. The breakout space design should support spontaneous meetings which will significantly reduce the demand on traditional meeting rooms. A good breakout area design can also reduce delays in projects and decision-making due to meeting rooms not being available when needed.
THE OFFICE BREAKOUT SPACE AS A PRODUCTIVE MEETING AREA
It has been found that meetings conducted in a more informal environment are more productive for brainstorming and idea generation. There are many new designs for multi-functional breakout area furniture that have come on to the market in recent years. One of our favourites is the Media Bench which enables a number of persons to connect their portable device to share their information on to the large LCD screen at the touch of a button.
