|My office is in the midst of a complete redesign.|
An open design is a foregone conclusion, but I'm concerned about where they're placing the different teams. Engineering being placed in a high traffic central location, with sales off in a nook.
My theory is that engineering needs to be isolated as much as possible so as to reduce distraction.
Are there any studies/research/blogs/papers available on the topic of office layout that either support, or contradict me? I'd like to present my opinion to the people responsible for these decisions in my office, and would like data to back me up if at all possible.
