Everyone needs a place they can go to spend some quality time away from the crowd. With open plan layouts allowing instant accessibility to all however, this can cause some difficulty.
It is important to nurture the tasks that depend on concentration and privacy in the office. On average, employees spend 28% of their day managing and recovering from unnecessary interruptions. For this work style there is little room for flexibility; when you need absolute quiet and focus there can be no exception for disruptions or background noise.
Small quiet zones or private booths can provide support for those who need to take some time out to concentrate on the task at hand.
