My previous position was with a software developer who published computer
games. Our offices were in this cool converted heritage building. The space
(several floors of what seems like it used to be a factory or warehouse) was
subdivided into large rooms that housed ten-twelve team members. There were
no cubes and only offices (with lots of windows to the hallway) for the
senior management. Just a bunch of desks arrayed in a somewhat hap hazard
and flexible manner.

Many people may cringe at the lack of privacy, but it fostered a creative
environment and camaraderie amongst team members. Another example, I think,
of office geography responding well to function. DB.

My company has only cubicles. No one, not even the CEO, has an office.
This open-door policy is intended to nurture an atmosphere of "trust,
caring, sharing, and respect."
