Webb Associates has designed a workplace solution that aims to provide its users with acoustic privacy.

Every building has those spaces that people are drawn to for escape. Some are intentional through architecture, while others are more natural based on flow and activity, or the lack of it. Nooks, alcoves, corridors, and stairs often present an escape and that's exactly what LeanTo is designed to achieve.

Outfitted to feel like it was built into the space, LeanTo solves the need to take back our own attention or give full attention to others.

Comfort was a priority, the upholstered interior offers an acoustic shell, whilst optional tables provide work surfaces with easy access to integrated power.

This project has been longlisted in the workplace design project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
