The aim of this paper is to investigate whether the users in an Activity-based flexible office follow the intended desk-sharing policy, and further explore if any use patterns emerge regarding workstation choices and preferences. Survey data was collected at a case organisation in Sweden. From all the 66 employees that had been relocated and received the survey electronically, 46 respondents completed the survey. The majority of the respondents followed the desk-sharing policy and did not claim workstations. Motives for switching workstations and workstation choices were related to the nature of respondents’ activities (e.g. temporal conditions), as well as their preferences.

Nyckelord: Activity-based workplaces (ABW), use patterns, use profiles, office design, office layout, flexible workspace, non-territorial offices, desk-sharing policy, surveys.
