Description

The Designer's Workspace presents an extensive resource of distinguished firms' responses to the design of their own offices. Featuring everything
from technical detail to interior design, it illustrates what these designers see as the major considerations for modern workplace design.

This book reveals design solutions, details, and concepts that have been explored and used by design firms from around the world. From the first impressions at the Reception area and Lobby, to the appeal and diverse uses of the meeting areas, to the functionality and sleekness of the Design Studio
itself, it illustrates how the designer's office can be quite unique in style, function, and character whilst also varying from culture to culture. No two designers will produce the same atmosphere. With this objective, The Designer's Workspace showcases an array of designs from the traditional to the contemporary, from the historic renovation to the new office tower and serves as a portfolio of the varied responses and solutions found to the challenge of designing the modern office.
