Last week I spoke with Robert Leaver and Michelle Gonzalez at their New Commons offices. It was a great conversation and one I hope to continue. Robert's and Michelle's manner and their working space immediately make you relaxed. I am usually confident and comfortable in new situations but the feeling of welcoming there was intense.
Their working space is very well designed. Robert's work creating spaces and places would of course lead you to expect this. Here is my rough [*] floor plan of the space. I particularly liked the open hallway and the offices's French doors onto the meeting space.
[*] Visio's floor planning tool is very easy to use. However, the formality of the final visual hides too well the inaccuracies of dimensions and the mistakenly forgotten or added features.
