I started off with a diagram exploring visual cues at the entrance, sun glare areas, and areas where sound would be the most concern which helped make the first big decisions. We picked locations for the work areas and the casual meeting and lounge area using the diagram. To help with glare from the windows the desks were rotated perpendicular to the windows and two large panels that glide along a track was installed parallel to the windows to help protect from the sun as it moves along it's path. Wood partitions add texture and hide cords while providing work privacy and dampening noise in the work areas. For the conference rooms felt was applied in an alternating brick pattern at the top of the room where sound waves bounce between wall and joist.
This project is ongoing and future planned work includes a plywood screen at the entrance suspended from the beam, furniture selection for the casual meeting area, and curtain sheers in the conference to help dampen sound and allow privacy.
