Privacy in an Open Space

In most working environments, Open spaces have numerous advantages, and have gained much popularity in recent years in all types of industries. Traditionally most offices were working in closed offices, they have now migrated to an open-plan concept, thus increasing collaboration and meeting areas.

There are several reasons why companies adopt this style of development. Among others:
- A decrease in the number of square feet required;
- Increased collaboration;
- The reduction of real estate costs;
- The reduction of furniture costs;
- An overview of the company / department;

- A diffusion of natural light;
- An increase in the movement of employees

What about the privacy of everyone in this type of project? Employees receive private calls at work and do not necessarily want to share details of their private life with all staff. In such cases, the obvious solution would be to move either outside the workspace or monopolize a meeting room.
