This paper presents a study investigating the impact of space design on behaviour and creative outcome of team work in learning environments. A dedicated space was especially designed and equipped to facilitate creativity during collaboration. A student course in engineering design was held both in conventional classroom settings and in the newly designed space. The observations and measurements made relating to the two environments are shown and discussed in the paper. The results indicate noteworthy differences that can help to positively influence learning and creativity in future lectures.
