There are many different types of office design on the block that it can be difficult to really know what they mean. For instance, a shared office might sound like just two or three people are sharing it, but in reality, this can be shared between more than one business. It’s important to know what spaces really are, in order to find the best for you and your amazing office furniture!
Have you heard a contiguous office space?
This is a series of two office spaces which are situated adjacent to each other. They don’t have to be on the same floor, and they can be above or below one another. The point is, they are adjacent.
These types of offices are particularly useful for large businesses who want to have different sizes of offices within their building, but want them to remain in a similar area. These types of offices are also ideal for minimising office distractions, because less people will be occupying them generally.
Of course, a contiguous office space isn’t going to be the right option for everyone, e.g. those who want to keep their entire team and their office chairs together. There is a certain amount of separation with this type of office space. Despite that, you could have a large conference room with contemporary boardroom tables and a regular, small office adjacent to it, and that would fit in with the contiguous office theory!
