Cubicle Workspace Configuration Considerations

The layout and arrangement of cubicles

hold great significance in the overall design of an office. As a result, incorporating cubicles in office design requires thoughtful planning and consideration of employee needs, available space, and the desired functionality of the workspace.

The primary objectives of how you lay out your workspace will ideally develop an environment that:

  • Promotes productivity and camaraderie
  • Strikes a balance between personal space and collaboration
  • Fosters adaptability in the face of a hybrid work setup and non-fixed workstations

Which type of cubicle and which type of configuration(s) you choose also depend on factors such as:

  • Storage needs
  • Employee privacy needs
  • Desk/work surface needs
