Open "Scrum" Conference Room
"Scrum" conference rooms are designed to be for quick, ad-hoc meetings to review progress, answer quick questions, and establish next steps, taking no more than 10-15 minutes. Each conference room is outfitted with a monitor which can be used to either broadcast a meeting attendee's laptop, or to video-conference.
An area "in between" spaces, allowing access to a bottle filling station, coffee and other beverages, and restrooms. All conveniently located near the main developer area and just outside an enclosed conference room.
Small Conference Room
Designed for longer meetings, the room is organized around a monitor for tele-conferencing. The desk is a found piece of PA walnut with a "live edge." The conference room walls are obscured glass to allow for visual privacy and for white-boarding.
Custom workstation (R+D) organized to allow views and natural light fro each and every employee. Daylight-sensor direct-indirect lighting for optimal light and energy use. Scrum and Private Office "cube" beyond.
Concrete Ramp sinks, walnut cabinetry, auto IR faucet & soap dispenser
