AirBnbSanFrancisco2

Airbnb – the startup that redefined the tourism industry, has positioned their vast and innovative “home” in the buzzing city of San Francisco. Welcomed by an impressive five-storey atrium, visors are instantly surrounded by views of different homes from around the world. The aim behind it, was to create the most popular listings on the website into actual meeting spaces and communal areas, infusing the space with the Airbnb’s identity and culture.

With a Danish houseboat as a reception, movie inspired boardroom, break room after Airbnb kitchen in Reykjavick and Paris-listing themed conference room, the informal set up of the office space aims to boost employee creativity and stimulate impromptu meetings. The innovative interior design makes every corner of the space unique, transmitting different feel and ambiance. The unconventional meeting rooms act as an inspirational setting for brainstorming and planning.

THE CUBE

THECUBE was opened in 2009 in the Shoreditch area of London, it offers a variety of co-working capabilities along with standard virtual offices, meeting rooms and desk space.  But according to THECUBE they are “a fresh and modern designed space that offers its members more than just an office or hot desking”.

The co-working space is all open plan,  something specifically done to encourage collaboration and networking between members. Again, according to THECUBE great care was taken to included colours which have been shown to release serotonin, a chemical which helps increase concentration and calms one down.
