Agile Office
A collaborative workplace 

We were engaged to design the Chief Information Officer’s office of an organization. Recognising that agile software development is a set of methods and practices where solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing and cross-functional teams, it was important to create a work environment that is very flexible to enable various work scenarios. Keeping in mind structure and clarity in the spatial framework.

Making use of the double volume space, we designed the lounge as the first encounter to facilitate social interaction and also creating an informal atmosphere for collaborative work. We created various types of seating arrangements in the lounge for various work dynamics or simply to have group lunches or celebrations. We layered the work zone behind the lounge area as people walk through to their work desks.

The simplicity of the open plan work zone is specific to the need for flexible reconfiguration of teams, and complimented by the proximity of discussion rooms of various sizes along the work zone. We also created a distinct discussion area that supports small to big ad hoc group discussions or open presentations and sharing sessions.
