Title: New environments for working

Ref Code: BR341
Authors: D Jaunzens, F Duffy and A Laing

Abstract1: Considers how office buildings and their environmental systems will perform when their pattern of use changes from the typical 9-5. The study defines modern working patterns, devising four metaphors (hive, den, cell and club) to describe organisational patterns of work and their spatial consequences. This book describes how these concepts can be applied, and their consequences for office design and operation from the perspective of users, and those responsible for procuring office space. Also considers trends in how these working patterns are applied and the impact on product development.
