Most Awesome Company Offices

Business Inspiration Behind The Scenes

Businesses these days, particularly those who make their money on the internet, seem to be paying much more attention to their staff and work environment, so that they can really get the most out of them

Company Offices are mostly standardlooking with the same beige colors and office design having cubicles for employees and office for bosses. If you are interested in designing your office in ways which will increase your employees’ morale and inspire them to be more energetic and lively, see the company offices at www. architecturedesigns.com listed below that have put in everything to make their offices anything but boring. They are offices of famous companies that have created a benchmark for stylish offices with the use of perfect colors, textures, and lights.

YOUTUBE – SAN BRUNO, CALIFORNIA, US

YouTube is an interesting company really because it was sold in less than 2 years for princely sum of $1.65 billion, yet it’s earning capabilities seem to be far below that. That hasn’t stopped Google from splashing out on big expensive offices though, which seems to be a trademark for them.

Big open floor plans and perks for employees dominate this office complex, as they can relax with a bit of indoor putting, free-roam Segway riding, eating, gaming, swimming, and gym activities, to name just a few. It’s business and pleasure all rolled into one at YouTube, with the hopes that the staff will be relaxed and inspired enough to come up with new ideas and work well with their colleagues.

SELGAS CANO – MADRID, SPAIN

This must be one of the most relaxing offices to work in, because you’re half underground, and half above ground, with views out into the woods. This is Selgas Cano Office, which was designed by Iwan Baan and is situated in a forest, near Madrid, in Spain.

This office for architects is light and airy, with clean lines and colorful details, making it a great place to work from. It’s less about awesome fun slides, great food and gaming areas, and more about a relaxed environment, away from harsh lighting and big empty rooms.

RED BULL OFFICE – SOHO, LONDON, ENGLAND

London office of Red Bull is a converted building of five old pubs in Soho. With none of the buildings originally linking together, or even having floors on the same height, this was always going to be an interesting building with plenty of space and cool features. Red Bull isn’t just about energy drinks, these offices are for roughly 100 people in their 20’s mostly, to come and collaborate and be creative together in these unique spaces.

They threw away the corporate office rule book and decided upon a more lounge like feel, with original features from the old buildings, and a reception that turns into a bar at night. This is the perfect workspace for the young Londoner looking to be creative with one of the most interesting companies around.

GOOGLE OFFICE – ZURICH, SWITZERLAND

It’s no secret that Google is a fun, fresh company, with tonnes of money, and dedicated employees, and part of the secret behind these employees is the awesome offices that they work from. Google put a lot of time and money into making the perfect work environment, mixing business with pleasure so that the staff can relax and refuel during their breaks.

Google thrives of creativity and that thought has very much gone into the reasoning behind the designs of their offices, providing every employee with a space for them to be creative.

AOL HEAD QUARTERS – PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA, US

It’s no secret that AOL isn’t the company that is used to be, but they’re trying to make big changes with the purchase of websites such as Techcrunch and Huffington Post, and they’ve recently had a massive overhaul of their headquarters to suit.

They’ve gotten rid of the bland corporate facade and taken a leaf out of Google’s books and tried to make their office more fun and inspiring, with fresh new designs. This office is everything you’ll come to expect from enormous internet companies with large kitchens, splashes of color, countless relaxation areas, pool tables, games rooms, and of course, the all important work spaces.

FACEBOOK – PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA, US

Facebook went around their office design a little differently to most companies, actually using it’s own software to conduct polls asking their employees what they would want from an office. The result was a superb work environment with big open spaces to work from, and amazing relaxation areas with a place to skate and DJ from.

There’s no simply plugging in your iPod to a dock, there’s a whole booth that you can polish up your mixing skills at while entertaining colleagues. All of this combined with the modern, comfortable styling of the complex and means that Facebook is one of the best places to work and play, which is ideal really, considering their employees look after 500 million people a day, from roughly 750 million active accounts.

LEGO – DENMARK

The colourful open-plan layout encourages interaction and play between the staff, in an effort to fuel their imagination, which is what Lego is all about. The meeting rooms are all light, colourful, and open, and vary in size depending on their uses, but they’re all designed to one thing: provide a happy and comfortable working environment to boost moral and product development.

The whole office is designed so that anyone can play with the lego and come up with something new, while getting work done, and enjoying their time at the company. If spending the whole day playing and working with Lego doesn’t make you happy, then I don’t know what will!

DTAC HEADQUARTERS – BANGKOK, TAJLAND

Dtac recently decided to put an end to separate office spaces throughout the city of Bangkok, and brought all six buildings under one roof, which happens to be the largest ever office lease in Thailand’s history, occupying around 60,500 square meters.

The move and design reflects the company’s desire to become the employer of choice, to “enhance cooperation and communication, strengthen common goals, increase creativity” and make it easier for the brand to react quickly to changing conditions. Dtac’s brand approach is “play and learn” and they wanted to reflect this to their employees and customers with their new, rather inspiring office, spanning 22 floors.

THINKGARDEN – MILAN, ITALY

ThinkGarden understand that to do work, we have to spend most of our time indoors, but there’s no reason why we can’t being some living nature in with us. Their whole office is designed to reflect nature with stone shaped bean bags, large plants, flowers and trees, and unusual desk positioning.

Even the walls are designed to make it look like you’re in the middle of a woods, and the bright white furniture contrasts with the plant life, making it stand out even more. If you don’t think this office is green enough yet, then maybe the putting green in the reception area will change your mind.

CORUS QUAY – TORONTO, CANADA

This is one of the largest offices on the list, and by the looks of things, one of the most fun. It’s a massive 46,500 square meters, and home to Corus Entertainment. It’s been labeled Toronto’s smartest building. The building brings together 1100 staff which used to be housed in 11 separate buildings, into an open office environment with multiple social spaces, even including a five story atrium with a three story slide and lounge above a couple tv studios.

This building is all about having fun and bringing the entire work force of a company together in one place to create a boost in productivity, helping the company to continue to grow. Bright colours, big TV’s, boardroom tables shaped like ice hockey rinks – this building really has it all.
