Engaging Workplaces

The Office Transformed

The Conventional Office

To promote physical distancing, Atlas has been reconfigured to create an area with four staggered workstations instead of six side by side
(Before; top left).

Catena, meanwhile, creates a screen between each desk in this office, providing psychological comfort to staff working here. It acts as an acoustic barrier, creating quiet space for calls and online meetings (After; top right).


The Open-Plan Office

Here, Atlas sets the scene for a safe workplace that minimises health risks by promoting physical distancing. Staggered desk arrangements take seat numbers from eight to four, each with at least 4 square metres of space.

Additional desks replace open meeting areas. They are supported by Catena, which creates privacy and the perception of safety.
