Ideally your space has some room and isn’t too confined. This will make it easier to bring in gear, set up, and move around. And it will also aid in the shots beauty. Remember, depth is crucial in creating an interesting shot. It can allow for unique lighting and layers of look in your shot as well. You can also add more props, colors, and people if needed. Make room!
You may want total light control, as with a green screen shoot. Is this possible to block out all competing light, whether windows or overhead fixtures?
On the other hand, you may want daylight and the beautiful natural look a window can give. This could help mimic a real life setting or give a warm feel to an interview.

Added bonus is wifi accessibility for devices requiring it. And lastly, is the area secure? Put everyone at ease with a safe location to store computers, personal items, and of course the production gear itself.
You may know all this if it’s your space or your company’s but check on this if using a different location such as an AirBNB rental.
