A freelance friend of mine is doing a stint at Saatchi right now and she sent me a picture of the office. I had all but forgotten how old school agencies put creative teams in offices. I've never had an office and i would hate to be detached from the people is was working with.
Here at Preview we have the studio and office spilt over two floors. It works well most of the time. I couldn't imagine ever reaching a point where i shut myself away and work in solitude. The other end of the continum is Mother. They sit eveyone (over 100 staff) around one table. Each person has a laptop and sits with whomever they happen to be working with. It's an amazing set up and worth checking out if you get the chance.
