2. Google, Zurich
Known for loony office designs, Google seems to be on the wish list of almost everyone! While you will see a crazy streak in almost each office of Google around the world, but the one in Zurich completely stole our hearts! What is more inspiring is that they ask their employees what would they like their office environment be and accordingly style their interiors.
In addition to a play area for games like soccer, basketball & more; this office has a separate space to listen to some rock music and another area where they can fake rock out videos, meeting spaces with lounges, insane conference spots all over, Gondolas for conference calls, and more; this place is full of surprises!
Yes, it’s that cool!
3. YouTube, California, US
When Google bought the king of video-sharing just after two years it was created for a whopping $1.65 billion, the earning was not really fruitful, at least not worth the price Google paid. But this didn’t affect Google in spending dollars on designing the offices and giving it a home-like feel to its employees.
There are abundant light, common spaces, a mini-golf area, Energy Pod for a power nap if work becomes a stress; the space deserves thumbs up!
Ever dreamt of working in such an environment? It’s a reality for the many workers out there!
4. Facebook, California
Another office situated in California, the office space of Facebook is a stuff of dreams indeed! Apart from relaxing spaces & fun cafeterias, striking conference rooms, the office even has a separate DJ booth for its employees. And just like Google asked its employees for their dream office space, Facebook, too conducted polls using their own software to design this magnetic space.
5. Microsoft, Gurgaon, India
Microsoft always wanted its office in India to be a futuristic workspace with Indian ethos and so this marvel was designed! Quiet spaces for employees who enjoy their own company, phone rooms & one-on-one conversation rooms, around 60 briefing rooms of varying sizes & styles, café, this ‘activity-oriented’ office space is one that will want you to work here for the rest of your life!
6. Mind Candy, London, Britain
The office space of this game company is not the ones you see all around. It’s the one you’ll fall in love with! Decked with astro turf carpeting, a wooden tree house, vibrant artwork all around, quiet spaces mimicking hobbit-holes, a fun slide, padded booths for meetings & lunch, monsters drawn on office walls for employees to color and a forest-like reception; the Mind Candy office is the ultimate destination for anyone!
7. Inventionland, Pittsburg
If you’ve never been to any of the offices of Inventionland, then it is something you’ve never experienced before! The employees at Inventionland wear lab coats (all of them!) and are referred as ‘Creationeers’.
Talking about the office, it’s stretched over 70,000 sq. ft. of area and designed with 15 different sets including pirate ships, castle, a giant robot, race tracks, faux caves, etc. Imagine working on a pirate ship wearing? Sounds exciting, right?! The office infrastructure is probably one of the factors leading to the growth and prosperity of this firm which invents about 2000 items every year, releasing one every three days. Clearly, the office at Pittsburg is one place to bring the best out of you!
