The workspace of any company reflects upon its brand identity. The environment where people work has a direct effect on their productivity as well as creativity. So, it becomes imperative to give serious thought to the workspace design.
There are several companies around the world with beautiful workspace where anyone would love to work. Apart from being creative and vibrant, these workspaces have intelligent architecture. These are designed in an organized manner to ensure optimum space utilization without being cluttered.
With that in mind, here are my top 7 workspace designs to inspire you.
1. Three Rings Design Inc., San Francisco
The gaming company Three Rings Design Inc., in San Francisco boasts of an innovative workspace designed around the Nautilus submarine from Jules Verne’s famous “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.” This workspace is fitted with Steampunk style decorations and fittings.
Wooden screens have been used to divide the office space into different sections. Each section features submarine controls, deep-sea creatures, and Victorian furnishings. Truly, this one immersive workspace designed to inspire you.
2. White Mountain Data Centre, Stockholm
The workspace of Bahnhof AB is situated at the White Mountain Data Centre in Stockholm, and it seems out of this world. It is seriously one of the most astonishing offices on the planet. As the legend says, a 100-foot deep cave was dug out of rock as a nuclear bunker in the streets of Stockholm. Later this cave was renovated by Albert France Lanord Architects.
They’ve now fitted the cave with futuristic interiors to make it look like a different world — what a place to work!
3. Diane von Furstenberg Headquarters, New York
The renowned designer Diane von Furstenberg has her company’s headquarters seat 120 in an historic building amid Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. This building has been renovated and has distinctive facades with the roof space fitted with beautiful geometric glass structures. The interior architecture is equally beautiful with hanging crystals and a glass stairway. These crystals illuminate the building to frame a picturesque view.
4. Googleplex, Mountain View
Google’s passion for innovation is also shared by the architect of its corporate base in California. Named as Googleplex, this campus has it all right from colorful open-plan offices, bicycles, meeting and brainstorming rooms, pianos and more. It also features projections of current Google searches. The staff people are also allowed to bring their dogs at work.
5. Medina Turgul DDB, Istanbul
This Turkish advertising agency is acclaimed for its beautiful office architects. It is a stunning office in a converted stone-salt barn. The interiors are equally awesome with their contemporary wood and glass elements.
Its open-play layout, mezzanine floors, and wood-carved architectural elements gives it a historical yet elegant look.
6. Macquarie Group Limited, Sydney
The office of Macquarie Group Limited in Sydney is just what an investment company’s workspace should look like. It is aesthetically designed with transparent glass and vibrantly colored work stations.
This office features airy atriums, open spaces, and meeting rooms. This workspace is designed by Clive Wilkinson Architects in compliance with industry standards.
7. TBWA/ Hakuhodo, Tokyo
The TBWA/ Hakuhodo in Tokyo reflects the traditional-yet-sophisticated touch of Japanese wooden art. This workspace came into existence through a three-way collaboration of TBWA with Hakuhodo, a Japanese ad major, and Klein Dytham, an architecture company.
The workspace has won awards for its design, which is inspired from an old bowling alley. There is a lawn with lush green grass and an adjacent open space with offices, project spaces, and meeting rooms.
Always a pleasure to see what kind of spaces are being created and used around the world. Keep us updated. Thanks…Doug
