Since there is no dedicated space for designers in Saudi Arabia, the need for suitable workspaces for the designer and innovator is pressing. To achieve the aims of this vision efficiently, these spaces need to be designed creatively and to assist in stimulating thinking. Therefore, this paper examines the designers' work environment and needs, and the facilities allocated to them that may help stimulate innovation and encourage productivity.
