The larger the organization - the larger and more grander the reception area. Huge impressive, impersonal halls of glass, stainless steel and marble. What a waste of space!

I wish I could recall the name of the law firm I heard about in Germany who transformed their reception area by moving both their library and cafe there. It was not only used to hold internal meetings and meetings with clients but clients were even welcome to come in to have coffee and make use of the library.

Does anyone know whom I'm talking about?

I'd love to see more organizations so this :-)
