How to design functional meeting spaces

A well-designed meeting space plays an important role in fostering collaboration, enhancing your team’s productivity, and supporting effective communication among those in the room. When creating a meeting space, it’s essential to ensure that it is not only comfortable and functional, but also has the right layout, acoustics, lighting, and, most importantly, privacy. This will help ensure that ideas are communicated clearly, and participants stay focused and engaged. What’s more, it will also help to keep any sensitive information private.

At Altitude Glass, we specialise in providing top-quality glass partitions and glass balustrades for office spaces throughout the UK. That means we understand the importance of creating the ideal meeting space, enabling us to help you design a space that is both functional and visually appealing.

What makes a functional meeting space?

The ideal meeting space encourages productive collaboration and effective communication among the team. It needs to be designed with careful consideration of layout, acoustics, lighting, and amenities to create a comfortable and conducive environment for discussions, brainstorming sessions, and decision-making. The meeting space should also be flexible enough to accommodate different meeting formats and activities while promoting professionalism and morale. So, how do you create a space like this in your office?

Determine the purpose and size of the space

The first thing to consider is the purpose of the space. Some of the things you could potentially use your meeting space for include:

  • Formal presentations
  • Brainstorming sessions
  • Collaborative work
  • Client meetings

Knowing the primary purpose of the space will help you choose the right features and layout. Once you have this figured out, you can think about the expected occupancy and frequency of use. Will the space need to be able to accommodate the whole team comfortably or just the occasional smaller group? These details will help you determine the size and seating arrangements you need.

Identify any specific requirements

As with any space, before you begin creating it, it’s always wise to have a plan in mind for any specific requirements you’ll be wanting to incorporate. Some typical meeting room features that you can consider including include:

  • Privacy screens
  • Acoustic treated glass to lessen excess noise
  • Technology integration
  • Accessible entrances and exits

For example, if you’re planning to use the space for confidential meetings, you’ll need to ensure that it’s soundproofed to protect sensitive conversations. This is where our glass partitions come in! Our acoustic glass is specifically designed to reduce noise and create a peaceful environment. We achieve this by using a soundproof membrane made of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) that is seamlessly sealed between the glass planes, giving the appearance of a single pane of glass while preventing vibrations from passing through.
