Abstract

Office interiors today still play an important role in human life, because employees spent most of their time in the office. Many employees who work in offices occupy cubicle workspaces; small, cube-shaped space sealed off by boards made of wood, glass, or other materials as a room divider. Many studies stated that working in the cubicle space for a long time will cause discomfort, stress, and disrupts work productivity for its users. To reduce the foregoing, many employees personalize their workspace, as Wells explained that about 70% of American employees tend to personalize their workspace. In this study, personalization of space refers to the decoration, modification, or rearrangement of space per under its users so that they are comfortable when engaged in it. This research used mix method (qualitative and qualitative) with a case study of an interior lecturer room Petra Christian University in Surabaya. The conclusion of this research indicate that the form of implementation of space personalization varies, such as personal items that show their territorial identity and territory. The implementation of psychological personalization of space makes users comfortable and happy to work in a space that suits their character, and the meaning of personalization is to express your identity and as a second home. Personalization is an important thing to consider to implement in the workspace.
