Office design has changed significantly over the last few years and is now one of the most innovative areas of interior design.

It used to be the case that only the public spaces of an office were creatively designed, but increasingly the staff areas are seen as key reflections of the company brand as well. In more radical offices, there is also a growing belief in the importance of work areas as social spaces and a blurring of the distinction between work and recreation.

This book explores in detail 42 of the best recent office design schemes, featuring projects from leading architects from around the world. Each project includes photographs as well as detailed drawings and plans, where appropriate, as well as informative text describing the design concept and process. A bonus CD contains drawings featured in the book, in both eps and dwg (generic CAD) formats.
