When you think of an office, you might think of some whiteboards, cubicles, and a small kitchen where morning coffee is brewed. Unfortunately, this is the case for almost every office around the world.
But not these top 5 most stylish offices.
These offices take the usual workplace and elevate it to a point where it’s not just work – it’s a visual meal. Whether it is with murals, floor-to-ceiling windows, or eccentric decorations, these companies make their organizations more than just four walls to work in. They’ve become four walls to thrive in.
Google, New York, NY, USA
It’s not Manhattan, but Google has found its new home in the heart of Chelsea, New York. As big as the city is, the Google office still might be the prettiest place on the island. Consider this office like an homage to the areas and eras of New York City. It’s not just the hallway paved in subway tiles or the graffiti murals on the walls, it’s the little details like a meeting room meant to replicate a small, vintage New York City apartment.
To make things better, Google offers free food to their employees and they can bring their dogs – what more could you want from an office space?!
Any employee coming from the California office are in for a rude awakening if they thought this would look anything like their headquarters.
Innovation Lab at Royal Caribbean, Miami, FL, USA
Although a cruise hub, the Port of Miami welcomed its Innovation Lab in 2016 and it has only gotten better since then. It’s not just aesthetically pleasing, with its colored furniture, bean bags, and hanging chairs. The Innovation lab is also practical as Royal Caribbean’s newest facility to test the ship designs and bring creativity and technology all together to make magic happen. Beyond their collaborative work spaces, the Innovation Lab features The Cave – a virtual reality room where engineers and architects can take a deeper look and see how the cruise design would look in person.
Yelp, London, England, USA
Step into Yelp headquarters in London and the first thing you see is how relaxed it all is. You might even forget it is a billion dollar company. In this space, they strive to be friendly and urban. Throughout the large open kitchen and music playing throughout the whole floor, there’s even a ping pong table for staff to use to relax after a hard day’s of work. Need some space? There’s two giant open workspaces to use all your creativity.
Mercedes Benz, Atlanta, GA, USA
To say that Mercedes Benz has thought of it all is an understatement. There’s an in-house coffee bar, a restaurant-quality café, a fitness center with trainers and an on-site daycare. It’s made entirely of glass so employees can enjoy natural daylight. Additionally, it’s not overcrowded since every worker has their own individual workstation.
Not only is it beautiful, it’s also environmentally friendly.
Mercedes Benz has a water reduction policy using drip irrigation and also partners with Second Helpings Atlanta Inc., to make sure extra food isn’t being wasted and given to those in need. It even allows its employees to have flex scheduling to reduce traffic impact.
In a time where people want to work and help the community, the Mercedes Benz building isn’t just aesthetically pleasing, but also positively impactful.
Instagram, New York, NY, USA
It’s a no-brainer that the headquarters for Instagram, the social media platform, is absolutely photogenic. It’d be weird if it wasn’t. They have a giant colorful dome to not only get work done in it, but to take incredible pictures. Even the furniture inside this dome is movable so you can really get the perfect shot. Other spots around the office includes a giant plant wall and a filming studio for Insta videos.
Even when employees aren’t working, they can enjoy their time and pictures at the Frozen Palm, a fruit and gelato bar. They have drinks in coconuts for crying out loud! Some of them are even named after Instagram filters. How meta.
While most offices are taking the luxury of making their office spaces stylish, perhaps Mercedes Benz does the best job at it. It’s not only beautiful and luxurious, close to the brand they advertise for, but it even does so while helping the local Atlanta community. Who doesn’t want a company that keeps in mind being eco-friendly and visually pleasing.
