Technological advances have initiated obvious changes in types of work so that the traditional cube office layout cannot meet current users’ needs. This paper aims to develop an experimental platform for the workplace which is centered on satisfying users’ demands. Living lab studies are examined in order to evaluate the uses of the place, with different interactive installations of furniture in the space, and a back-end BIM platform, to present a humane smart workplace of the future.
