  2. Create activity-based areas -; Zones are always a great idea to segregate space. A quiet room forbrainstorming, and a collaboration zone are great for starters and you can create more as you go along.

Also, supplementing natural light with appropriate lighting wherever needed but with an option of customisation also aids in creating a good office space.  WeWork buildings pay special attention to natural light to create a space that enures inspiration.
