Creative Workspaces

Do you work in a creative workspace? If you work at Pixar or Google you do. Doesn’t everyone work better in a relaxing, comfortable, creative environment? If so, then why are so many office spaces the standard “cube it” and “blue it”.

If you had a chance to create a unique workspace what would be most important? Interaction with fellow employees? Design and color? Uniqueness?

Ain’t It Cool News has a great walkthrough of the Pixar workspace:

A lot of the animators decided early on that they didn’t want cubicles, so instead, Pixar found these groovy little cottages that they bought for them. Walking through the animation department is like walking through a neighborhood for dwarves. Lots of little houses laid out along “streets,” each one with an address on the door.

I’ve scanned/shot/collected some interesting spaces and posted them to a flickr set. Something to get the creative juices flowing on some ideas we can use on an upcoming move…
