InSite Spotlight: Breakout Spaces

Once an afterthought in commercial offices, staff lunchrooms or ‘breakout’ spaces are now an important component of corporate fitouts. 

With individual workspaces evolving to reflect open plan layouts, a well designed breakout space provides an environment for staff to relax and interact, away from their main work space.

A well designed and equipped breakout space is one of the top requests by our clients in their new fitout. By including features such as flat screen televisions and coffee machines, the breakout space becomes the hub of the office and encourages staff interaction and increased morale.

The breakout space also provides the opportunity to integrate your corporate colours in the finishes and furnishings, while creating a relaxed, welcoming space.

Increasingly, breakout spaces are being positioned in prime locations within the office, to take advantage of the outside views and natural light.  There is also the trend for breakout spaces to serve a dual purpose. Being fitted with fully equipped kitchens, and versatile furniture, the breakout space can be utilised as a function area. Integrating the breakout space with an adjoining boardroom using an operable wall allows for a vast space to opened up for corporate events or staff functions.
