Interior design is an important yet elusive dimension of workplace design research. It is the part of the office design with site-specific features that impact workplace satisfaction and, if overlooked, influences the comparison of typologically similar offices. Our approach builds upon workplace satisfaction and the need-supply fit theories. In addition, we apply the multidimensional framework of instrumental, symbolic, and aesthetic dimensions to communicate the user needs in the workplace design process. In this paper, we present the participatory design workshop method and discuss how its facilitation impacts the outcome of the participant activity and design thinking. This research was done in a multidisciplinary research project and a workplace design intervention study. Our research provides a novel approach to combing participatory design knowledge production and transfer of generated design data into a design process and an academic workplace design research.
