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.

Japan Office Space

This Japan office space is one to remember! The bank was created by the architectural firm emmanuelle moureaux architecture + design, developing the office space in the Japanese  city of Shimura. This Sugamo Shinkin bank’s Japan office space was designed to look like a layer of rainbows. The rainbows are formed by stacking various coloured slabs together, contrasted against a bright white background the colours seem to pop out of the building creating a wonderful explosion of colour. The building really comes into its own at night, when the layers are gently illuminated.

Here at eOffice we have partner locations all over the world, including Japan. If you are looking for stylish and affordable office spaces in Japan you can find out more here. We have locations is several cities across the country.
