Having worked in a cube farm in the past and now having to share an office,
I would lean toward what I had at a previous job that is somewhat of a
combination of the two. The setup had one large open area with four large
L-desks in each corner. The distance from one corner to another corner was
around 20 feet, so large enough to not hear your modular neighbor talking on
the phone and small enough to hold some great "World Ball" tournaments.
But considering that was a unique set-up as compared to the traditional
office layouts, I lean towards having as private an area as possible.
