Moving from private offices to an open environment can be challenging. To help AAN with this transition, the workstations featured 64” high electrified storage spines that provide privacy and storage, including a wardrobe cabinet. Woodgrain finish provides a warm, high-end aesthetic. A personalized solution in an open environment.

How do you move from an environment with over 90 percent private offices to a more open, collaborative environment and keep the team happy? It’s a common challenge faced by many organizations, including the American Academy of Neurology (AAN). They were outgrowing their workspace with almost all the employees having private offices and there was a lack of interaction between departments.

AAN’s design team from 20 below studio used Inscape System to help the team transition to a more open environment. In planning the new space where less than 25 percent of the employees would have a private office, the design team, led by Heather Rose-Dunning, created a workspace solution that balanced privacy and collaboration.

The key to making a smooth transition was to include many features of the private office in the more open workspaces. The design team used 64” high electrified-storage spines to provide privacy and storage, including a wardrobe cabinet for personal storage. Woodgrain finish on the worksurfaces and storage fronts provide a high-end aesthetic.

“We considered a number of manufacturers for the AAN project, but Inscape was the only one that could provide a comprehensive solution with standard product and no compromises. After reviewing the various proposals, Inscape’s solution was hands-down the top choice – from functionality and durability, to aesthetics and value.”
