An office can be built in almost any location or building, although requirements in terms of light, access, services, security, flexibility and layout may influence its location and design. Houses and other buildings can be designed with a room dedicated as an office. When considering the office space needed, analysis should be carried out of the types of spaces required (i.e. open office spaces, enclosed cubicles, private meeting facilities, conference areas etc.), the number of employees (current and anticipated), recreational requirements, welfare facilities, and so on.
