Open concept or rooms with walls
Open concept. Kitchen, dining, living room should be one shared space. I was never a fan of the huge "open concept" spaces on the HGTV shows. There was enough wasted space vertically to add another floor of two in some of them. We do not have an open concept home. Or do we... Pictured is the main living space in our new-to-us RV. I'm thinking that this meets my definition of "open concept" mentioned in the first line.
If we are talking about office space, I've never been a fan of cubicles. The entire time I've been at the university I've had an office. Even when I was a grad student. In the Butrovich building, where my office is located, 95% of the occupants are in the cube farm concept popularized by HP. The one time I had something resembling a cube, it had 8' walls, a door and a window. You don't bother your neighbors when you made phone calls or impromptu meetings. And, if you were a manager type, you didn't need to look for a conference room when you needed to talk to an employee.
