15 Gorgeous Offices That Make Going To Work A Whole Lot Cooler

*pins the entire Pinterest headquarters*

Posted on

1. Airbnb's office that could be more accurately described as a theme park.

With private meeting rooms designed to be exact replicas of popular listings and entire rooms inspired by cities around the world, Airbnb's headquarters are equal parts nostalgic and global.

2. Each room in Dropbox's headquarters is designed to accommodate a different mood and level of focus.

A dark, space-like "deep focus" room provides a space devoid of distractions for coding marathons and an old-school "jam room" offers instruments and vinyls to help employees decompress. Read more here.

3. The Paris WeWork is like all other WeWorks except that it's fucking gorgeous.

The Art Deco design reminiscent of 1920s France is as classic as it is modern.

4. The Edmunds headquarters is a dream for anyone who was obsessed with cars as a kid.

Besides the literal slide — aka the Expressway — in the lobby, each room is named after a different car and looks a bit like something out of Tron (the newer one).


5. This Bahnhof data center that is literally in a cave.

Does this remind anyone else of Dr. Evil's lair?! This bunker turned data center is decorated with waterfalls, plants, and a massive saltwater fish tank.

6. The "Knitting Staircase" at the center of Pinterest's HQ lets in natural light and creates a connection between all four floors.

The design has elements — such as the waffle ceiling in the lobby — that are both classy and quirky. See more photos on IwamotoScott Architecture.


9. The iHeartRadio HQ is perfectly fitting for the celebs who stroll through their front doors.

Stars sing from the stadium seating and all of the "Presentation Portals" (really high-tech conference rooms) are rigged with lasers that respond to touch. Yup, we are officially living in the future.

10. The New York Fosbury & Sons workspace is just so cool. It isn't surprising that it was inspired by NYC's High Line park.

This self-proclaimed "office with a soul" works to provide an experience akin to a hotel with swanky art installation, customized furniture, and warm colors.

11. Etsy's sustainable office has plenty of sunshine and is, of course, covered in crafts.

The shapes of the building mimic natural environments.


14. Second Home's curved spaces curb the "lost" feeling of wandering around a maze-like office.

The curved windows also let in a lot more natural light. See more of their offices here.

15. Of course Taco Bell's headquarters looks like an arcade.

From the original Taco Bell stand inhabiting the building to the entire room dedicated to screens that project the social traffic, this HQ's design showcases the fast food company's past and present.
