An inclusive workplace environment should be comfortable and functional for all of its users. Over the past decade, workplace environments have changed to offer more flexible spaces in a variety of ways and locations. Modern office designs blend different working and social spaces, which include, for example, modular workstations, corridors, furniture, non-traditional layouts and open spaces. In this way, workplaces are designed to offer spaces for the effective collaboration of staff and to optimize work practices by promoting spontaneous and free-flowing communication. However, new design tendencies often lead to greater complications in moving around the workplace. Such complications may affect all workers, but they will mainly affect those with sight loss who experience extra difficulties in pursuing their target destination.
