The full report can be found on Yulu's blog, but I wanted to focus on a couple aspect of the project. First, the designer had the challenge of squeezing three work stations, a kitchenette and room for a boardroom table into the small space. This wasn't just about figuring out what would physically fit, but what would work with the work flow of the office. A boardroom table isn't much good if it prevents someone from opening their file drawers while it's being used.
Katie Kovets) was able to free up counter space and keep lunch-time clutter from the rest of the office. This is similar to trying to hide post-dinner clutter from the dining room in an open concept kitchen.
My favourite point from Lorena's post however was her discussion of the benefits of using a qualified designer to help with your project:
Some may feel that bringing a designer on is a luxury that they can’t afford but with the savings we had access to through Katie’s inside wholesale rates, we just about broke even.
Thanks to Lorena for sharing this!
