Extreme well utilization of space! Basing my feedback on the pictures, I have not seen the room :)
Now you just need more flexibility.
Fixed tables - Reserve fixed setup tables in one corner for stationary computers.
Flexible tables - Eliminate fixed long table plate - replace with movable tables.
Increased flexibility, - for presentations/meetings.
Tall table - Consider 1 x tall table, for working standing/speaking/new seating position, possibly w bar stoles.
Floor - agree w laminate, better for office chairs, light wood.
Wall-mounting - wall-mount as much as possible, gives more space.
Paint and wall paint - high-gloss white, reflects light, gives feeling of more space.
Paint stairs white.
Pipes etc - paint them colorfully to integrate them in the design of the room. (saw this done at a basment office).
Lighting - mix of fluorescent lights (artificial white) and desk lamps (pleasant light) at work stations.
Talk to you soon!
I havnt looked yet,
but we need maps, lots of maps! Cnt have an evil basement lair withovt maps!
Ok a few preliminary points.
Don't we want the largest table in the middle?
Like a kind of conference table? I like that better than it being a small table in the middle.
Secondly I think that 1meter is a bit deep for a pc work station desk. Though at least one wall with a desk could be good for bigger projects. Oh and you forgot the reprap in there :p otherwise I am amazed! You Rock.
Hiya, I think you're gonna feel very crampt in there.
I would keep the table in the middle as looking at each other while gaming is more funny than sitting side by side and lose some desks on the wall. I don't think it's necessary to have all that along the walls.
I think shelving would be more beneficial to keep a group dvd/game collection in and hide away any spare btis and bobs. Storage is always useful.
I think you've got ample desk space with just 2 walls being deskededdeddd. Tx
