Is there evidence to suggest that certain office layouts are better than others for productivity?

An argument I often hear to justify open space office layout is that, being open, it contributes to team work and more collaboration between people.

Does it really contributes to team work, compared to private offices? Is there hard data that might support this?

  • This question is about collaboration and the duplicated question is about productivity. Exact duplicate?
