This is a very interesting question, as many companies (mostly technology ones) are putting a lot of emphasis on this question. Here are some considerations.
First, some companies want to create little nooks in their office layout, so that people can feel a sense of privacy, a place to call their own. This fosters creativity and feeling of comfort.
Second, some companies want free form office layouts, where there is a lot of flexibility. The aim for this is, again, to promotes creativity.
Third, many offices are creating a place where people can get together, when they want to. This is a public space where collaboration can take place.
Also a lot of companies are also creating place for "fun." For example, Zappos, the online shoe store is a prime example. The goal here is to create morale in the work place.
