One pattern of interior space is that of having an "intimacy gradient" as you move from the exterior deeper into the interior.
This applies to your home, where you move from foyer to living room to kitchen to bedroom to bathroom.
It should also apply to your workplace. Your office should progress from a shared space for much of your group, to space for tightly knit teams to interact, then finally to quiet thinking space for the individual.
