ELEMENTS OF NATURE AREN’T LIMITED TO THE GREEN WALL
in the town hall and cafe area at Alphasights, an information
services company. Open workstation zones feature wooden
planters and columns cladded in wood to add a bold pop of
green against the crisp black and white atmosphere.
ONE OF THE MAIN ISSUES FRESENIUS wanted to solve was a lack
of access to natural light for employees. The new designs include
reduced-height panels in workstations, and the company moved
employees closer to exterior windows when possible, explains
Sara Ross, Director of Corporate Services at Dyer Brown.
INFORMATICA’S OFFICE MAINTAINS INDIVIDUAL WORKSPACES while still prioritizing an energetic and team atmo-
sphere by providing privacy for employees that need to concentrate, as well as areas where groups of any size can
meet to work.
“Open workstations each have support spaces close by: standing collaboration, cozy ‘railway car’ nooks, work rooms, team rooms and conference rooms. In practice, this ecosystem works well for a company that
hires employees with a broad range of workplace preferences. Need a private office for the afternoon? It’s a
few steps from your desk. Tired of distractions from people walking by? Problem solved.”
