vibrating_floorHaving recently hired four people, we’re expanding into some more office space next to the product developers on the third floor. In the main room we’re trying to figure out if we should go more open concept (loud, but looks nice) or build a cube farm (practical, but doesn’t look nice).

We’re also trying to figure out how to solve a weird issue with the space. After we took possession we noticed that about one quarter of the floor in the main room vibrates (I think the ventilation system in the downstairs office passes under the hardwood floor). While Drew was in Dubai he acquired a large (8’x14’) Persian rug for us in an effort to absorb some of the vibrations. It sure looks nice, but it doesn’t do much to reduce the constant vibration. Any clever ideas?
