The Private Office


Define the Space

The private office, traditionally a corporate standard in workplace planning, has evolved into a nimble space, supporting technology-rich, collaboration-focused work. Today’s private offices not only address individual needs, but also focus on group work.

Three primary types of private offices – individual, multi-use and shared – support a spectrum of work styles ranging from focused to collaborative.


Ideal for focused work, individual private offices offer a sanctuary to minimize distraction and promote concentration and reflection.

Multi-use private offices support both individual and group work with spaces and technology that provide an alternate work setting for meeting and connecting in-person, or virtually with remote colleagues.

Shared offices facilitate learning and mentorship between teammates and can be optimized to support multiple hybrid workers who work in the office part-time and do not require a dedicated space. The shared office can be used many ways, ranging from a dedicated two-person office to an unassigned space occupied on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Things to Consider

A range of multifaceted considerations for individual, multi-use or shared offices ensure that private spaces are optimized to meet an organization’s functional and design needs. With the trend towards smaller workspaces, private offices are increasingly designed for footprint efficiency as well as to meet the performance demands of connected, adaptable spaces. 

1 Adapitability


Freestanding, independent elements offer users greater choice in configuring their offices and facilitate fast and easy reconfiguration, including the option to adapt spaces as meeting rooms or enclaves.

Smart planning with a small logical and affordable kit of parts results in efficient spaces that don’t sacrifice function. In addition, reducing the footprint of individual offices helps organizations optimize their floorplans (promoting equity in the process).
