(small) Office Space Psychology and Elements


Dec 1, 2012
About to setup a small office, and am curious about the psychology behind- as to how to purpose build a layout.

For starters I'm looking for a place with a Kitchen (we're in Asia) so people are well fed and hopefully that entices them to stay (improve retention).

I am unsure about open vs closed spaces.

I'd personally want a private space for myself. What are some of the pros and cons to consider with open space terminals vs cubicles in terms of worker psychology?

A space for worker group meetings seems necessary. Could this be the entrance or "common" area?

I also put a lot of thought about the experience of a visitor, someone who comes to meet me (such as stakeholder or client). I'd like for them to see the staff busy at work (point in favor of open layout?) but be able to engage in a private (sound-proof) conversation with me.
