The Modern Modular Integrated Design Trend

Progressive, forward-thinking engineers and architects are designing spaces that integrate both an open and enclosed office layout. Fully enclosed workspaces prevent optimal daylight or views. An integrated design creates the best of both worlds where daylight filters in without creating distractions. 

An integrative-designed office space fosters an adaptable work environment where employees can move about between the larger open spaces and more private areas between each task or work style needed. The results deepen a positive work culture while creating a more empowered and productive workforce.
