Open-Air Offices Inspire Creativity and Enhance Productivity
Eric Prum, cofounder of W&P Design in Brooklyn, New York, and the rest of his 12 coworkers share a single room on the fourth floor of an open-air, converted warehouse. Although it can occasionally be noisy, the layout has led to some very productive brainstorming sessions. In fact, their latest project, ¡Buenos Nachos!, was a direct result of the open-air office plan. The cofounders were discussing the idea for a hipster nacho cookbook in the office while the coworkers eavesdropped. What turned into a spontaneous idea quickly became a productive brainstorming session. From this open-air plan emerged a cookbook with over 75 recipes from famous chefs and celebrities, including Bill Hader, Andrew Zimmern, and Rachael Ray.
Aside from cost minimization, the logic of the open-air office is that it is meant to tear down the physical barriers between people in the workplace. The functional communication among employees is maximized when these barriers are removed. Starting with the organization’s functional goals in mind, an open-air workplace can be tailored so that it accomplishes these goals by setting aside certain areas or spaces so that they are well suited to accomplish specific functions (e.g., a meeting area, a reading area, etc.). For example, the New York branding firm Collins altered aspects of the environment to work around any limitations of an open-air office, including arranging the tables so that no person faces another employee. Overall, Collins found, in their own internal research, that the open-air office improves a sense of shared vision and mission, community, and creativity perceptions. Additional research also suggests that these open-air plans can reduce the amount of time spent in meetings.
“Our new, modern Tribeca office was beautifully airy, and yet remarkably oppressive. Nothing was private. On the first day, I took my seat at the table assigned to our creative department, next to a nice woman who I suspect was an air horn in a former life. All day, there was constant shuffling, yelling, and laughing, along with loud music piped through a PA system.” The picture Lindsey Kaufman, a Brooklyn advertising professional, described highlights the strain and dissatisfaction employees in open-air office environments can experience, even when there are cubicles granting at least some privacy. The creator of the cubicle, Robert Probst, envisioned something very different in 1964: a freespace where employees could customize their workplace to accommodate their level of privacy, space needs, and flexibility, and to give them a sense of autonomy in an open office. This “action office” became mass-produced and limited in size, quality, and customizability, leading to what we would now call the modern-day cubicle.
Studies on the open-air office and the confinement cubicles of modern offices paint a dismal picture of their effectiveness. One study reviewing hundreds of office environments found that, despite their cohesion benefits, open-air offices reduced workers’ attention spans, productivity, creative thinking, and satisfaction. One of the biggest factors responsible is the level of noise, which leads to decreased motivation and potential posture issues. The satisfaction levels related to noise, sound privacy, ease of interaction, among others, across 42,764 observations from over 300 office buildings were analyzed by researchers using the Post-Occupancy Evaluation (POE) database from the University of California at Berkeley. They found a clear disparity between satisfaction in open offices versus private offices, and drastically more satisfaction with the latter. And they found that ease of interaction (a goal of open-office plans) was no greater in open offices than in private offices.
