This week’s Workspace of the Week is Lpvisuals’ computer workstation:
No doubt about it, there is a lot of equipment in this workstation. A setup like this, however, is very common for help desk employees, IT managers, website designers, network security officers, programmers, and quality assurance testers who have to solve problems on numerous computer systems but who work in traditional office environments. They’re given a small desk that is built into the walls, and then must fit their equipment into the space that is provided as if it’s a game of Tetris. Keeping a desk with this much equipment clutter-free and organized can be a tremendous task, and Lpvisuals does it very well. Taking advantage of the arch area of the desk is a good idea, as it reduces time switching between the different platforms. Since there is so much equipment, it’s wise of Lpvisuals to keep the personal items to a minimum to reduce even more visual distractions. Thank you, Lpvisuals, for submitting your office to our Flickr pool — it’s a terrific reminder that a streamlined workspace can be had even if you need a lot of equipment to do your job.

Also, don’t forget that workspaces aren’t just desks. If you’re a cook, it’s a kitchen; if you’re a carpenter, it’s your workbench.
