The online ad startup AppNexus is definitely getting a lot of buzz lately for successfully raising $57 million in funding as well as for its impressive headquarters in New York City.
Spread over 2 floors and 67,000 square-foot-space, the playful interiors and design of the space comprises of a lot of meeting rooms and informal spots for impromptu creative meetings. The fact that people don’t necessarily work at their desk is one of the main elements taken on board by Agatha Habjan – the interior designer of AppNexus office workplace.
The space features the signature for the company orange and black colours. One of the unique elements is a vertical break out area with vinyl upholstered seating pods, which are used for relaxation as well as for work. This innovative structure reinforces the informal work setting, stimulating creativity and inspiration amongst employees.
The open plan workspace also has its own “selfie” walk of fame – where employees are encouraged to post selfies on a corkboard, a fun way to get to know the ever-growing team.
Custom-painted skateboards cover one of the walls, making an artistic statement as well as being reminiscent of the company’s promotional campaigns.
There is large café area with wool covered foam-padded benches for comfort and definitely for aesthetics. Oh, and did we mention the mini basketball court? Yes, there is a basketball court in response to the employees’ big affiliation with the sport.
Definitely a fun office to work from!
