Proxemics This is the study of how individuals use space, proper space planning will account for three types of territory, private, personal and social. Private space is accepted to be a space of 450mm around the individual. If another person enters this space it is often and instinctively taken as hostile. Personal territory is 450-1200mm this is the work area where a person would keep belongings and work tools. 1200mm - 3600m is the social territory where professional and casual relationships occur. These space relationships must be carefully considered when working up a design and the layout of the office furniture can help determine these three territories with the definition of work spaces and meeting spaces.
