We met the team at ROOM at just the right time. We had already built the Breather brand as a service that lets you rent meeting space on demand — whether it was for a team-building session or a client interview. But in late 2018, we started supplementing our 500 meeting spaces with flexible office space for businesses that want to avoid signing a 3- to 5-year lease. They could get the same flexibility they see at co-working, but with their own private office environment. Leases are flexible, allowing you to expand or shrink as necessary.
When building out of each of these new Breather flexible office spaces, we make every decision based on research drawn from watching people work, surveys, interviews and a trove of research out there on design and work. We analyze how people work and what makes them work best.
Research backed ROOM’s products
We know from building science research that privacy and noise are very important considerations at work, especially open office spaces. Overhearing a conversation can be one of the most distracting noises in the workplace— and hearing just one side of the conversation can be even more disruptive.
