Light On Two Sides Of Every Room
When they have a choice, people will always gravitate to those rooms which have light on two sides, and leave the rooms which are lit only from one side unused and empty.
Locate each room so that it has outdoor space outside it on at least two sides, and then place windows in these outdoor walls so that natural light falls into every room from more than one direction." Chris Alexander, A Pattern Language #PatternLanguage #ChristopherAlexander
Half Private Office
What is the right balance between privacy and connection in #office work?
Avoid closed off, separate, or private offices. Make every workroom, whether it is for a group of two or three people or for one person, half-open to the other workgroups and the world immediately beyond it. At the front, just inside the door, make comfortable sitting space, with the actual workspace(s) away from the door, and further back." #ChristopherAlexander, A #PatternLanguage
