WHAT IS AN OFFICE TOUCHDOWN AREA?
There is a growing need for people in offices and also public areas to have a touchdown area. People need access to space where they can work for short periods using their smartphones, tablets or laptops. An office touchdown area is one where persons can work undistributed and also without distracting others. They are ideal for roving consultants or sales people who need a space for a few minutes. This could be for catching up with emails or maybe to do some preparation before a meeting.
TOUCHDOWN AREAS ARE NECESSARY
Touchdown areas are a vital part of any Agile Working or desk-sharing program. They provide the buffer or overflow area at peak periods when everyone is on site and needing a work space. They can also act as quiet zones where persons can take that confidential phone call. A touchdown area can also be used for visitors or temporary workers. Touchdown areas are often situated in reception areas, outside meeting rooms or in circulation spaces.

Case Studies Showing Touchdown Area Furniture
Also take a look at this interesting CASE STUDY for SportPursuit in London. This industrial style office design and refurbishment included a range of different work areas within the design. In addition to the main office area they wanted to have quiet working areas, touchdown areas and informal meeting spaces. As in this case study you find that a number of spaces can be designed as multi-use areas.
Most office design schemes include touchdown areas and some other case studies that give examples are below.
