8 Of The Coolest Offices In The World
Working at these places would make coming into work a whole lot easier! Check out the 8 coolest offices around the world…
1. Air BnB
From a Mumbai inspired cafe to a Rio de Janeiro-esque living room, Air BnB’s office in San Francisco is used to echo the Air BnB brand. Any company selling fantastic living spaces to their customers needs fantastic work spaces for their employees. Obviously! Think plush leather armchairs, tent style canvas hidden benches and huge windows to let in that Californian sunshine.
888 Brannan St, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA
2. Corus Entertainment
Three words. Three. Story. Slide. Why bother climbing down three flights of stairs or waiting ages for awkward small talk in a lift when you can take a twisting slide down to reception? Corus Entertainment’s offices are in Tortono Canada and as well as the slide, the office features leafy feature walls and open plan spaces. In case you needed more fun, the desks themselves are shaped like hockey rinks – now that’s what I’m talking aboot!
25 Dockside Drive.
3. DTAC HQ
DTAC is a telecommunications company based in Bangkok Thailand. As well as this impressive balcony turned yoga studio (featured above), the DTAC HQ boasts an indoor running track and masses of table tennis tables. You know, in case you weren’t convinced by the breath taking views of Bangkok.
Of course Google has snagged it’s rightful place on this list. With offices all over the world it’s hard to pick a favourite but we’ve chosen Tel Aviv in Israel. The open plan office space has a variety of interiors including earthy woodchipped floors and leafy light show ceilings. (Now say that quickly five times!) With an indoor slide, a plethora of funky breakout spaces and stunning 360 views of Tel Aviv, this office is perhaps the coolest of the lot. Trust me, I had trouble choosing just one photo!
98 Yigal Alon Street, Tel-Aviv, 6789141
Pixar’s HQ in Emeryville California is just as adorably unique as you might expect from the animation giant. As well as twinkly fairy lights and cutesy wooden cabins, the Pixar HQ is also home to a enormous statue of Luxo Jr. (the famous jumping desk light) and his ball. If my desk looked liked this one I’d have to resist the temptation to curl up and take a nap a work… because I DEFINITELY don’t do that already…
1200 Park Ave, Emeryville, CA 94608, USA
This vibrant and quirky office known as Fruit Towers spans across five floors and is the answer to all our office-related dreams. The festival-chic design with fake grass, wooden benches and punting decorating the walls and ceilings, Innocent Smoothie’s office in Kensal Green London is a wonderfully refreshing work space.
342 Ladbroke Grove, London W10 5BU
7. Mind Candy
Perhaps taking the biscuit as ‘Britain’s coolest office,’ (and of course it’s in London’s ever so trendy Shoreditch!) This entertainment company is home to Moshi Monsters and these little critters are all over the work space. The bright colours give the office a vibrant and energetic feel. How does anyone get any work done here?!
15 Bonhill St, London EC2A 4DN
8. Inventionland Design Factory
This ‘idea incubator’ operates exclusively with Davidson Design and Development and looks more like a wonderful theme park than an office. Think huge clear water swimming pool, picturesque tree house and a decorative pirate ship. The Inventionland Design Factory is located in Pittsburgh, USA and is seriously impressive! Still, we’d hate to be that half asleep employee who accidentally falls into the pool on a Monday morning!
585 Alpha Dr, Pittsburgh, PA 15238, USA
