When looking at work environment and organisational design, they are both being valued higher today by the businesses and employees than just twenty years ago. Office spaces are designed to suit the individual organisational structures and the constructiveness of the employees. Lately a few Danish organisations have experimented with the upcoming organisational design, the hybrid space, combining multiple functions, operations and tasks within one single organisation. The hybrid space is a polyvalent space, rethinking the organisational structure, strategic use of employees and affiliation to the organisation. Through office design and diverse projects, the employees have more transparency in their assignments, organisation as well as in their teams. Because the hybrid space is new to the Danish organisations, this thesis aims to flesh out the structure and occupation of this organisational design within the office space of selected Danish organisations.
Findings indicated that the hybrid organisation embraces flexibility and creativity on individual and organisational plan. Due to this creative structure, the hybrid space creates spatial belongings within the space, structured by both organisational factors as well as personal factors. Having a polyvalent space like the hybrid space constructs social subgroups and spatial boundaries for the users of the space, embracing both the creative and dynamic flow in the space.
