In the images and files provided, it was apparent that the interior lighting was not optimal, and the layout seemed cramped, both of which are not conducive to an efficient and motivating work environment. The new organization focuses on improving work flow and efficiency by creating straight lines of sight in the building and improving natural light in the work station spaces and gathering areas. The entrance is moved slightly north to allow a line of sight with the door to the shop. When you enter, you will immediately be aware of where the shop, work stations, lobby, bathrooms, conference rooms, and coffee areas are. This entry point allows users to immediately see their "options" in the building so they can get there quickly.
The bathrooms have been kept the same as they suffice for building usage of this size. Ample storage and other utility areas were added in the immediate area surrounding the bathroom to create a separation between public and private spaces. This creates a noise buffer between work station spaces and conference rooms/lobby.
In the work station areas, 6 skylights are added to improve natural, diffuse lighting. This is the best way to ensure workers have ample light without glare. The north and south facades were also given large glazing windows to improve natural lighting and allow heat gain in the winter when it is needed.
Three offices were added to the east side of the building, one larger than the other two. The offices are located by modifying existing window locations into doorways. All three offices have direct access to the main work station areas as well as lines of sight to the street.
