Make passive spaces active

Make passive spaces, for example corridors or passageways, active so that they can be more than just a transit route. Using activity-based furniture that can be moved when needed creates an active environment which makes the morning walk more enjoyable and can serve as a spontaneous and inviting meeting place. Use furniture that people can lean against or sit on to rest for a while but that also offers something to look at or to do. A library with books and newspapers offers a space for sitting, browsing or borrowing and turns the corridor itself into a destination. However, consider accessibility and fire protection and let the measurements of the corridor dictate the furnishing.
