- Facebook Inc. – We all know Facebook as a company is worldwide so it’s pretty understandable that they have impressive office spaces. The Facebook office is full of crazy designs and chilled out chairs, making it possibly one of the coolest places to work. Mark Zuckerberg prides his business on its relaxed atmosphere and its offices reflect that.
- Google – Another online super giant, possibly the biggest of them all, and they haven’t held back with their offices either. Very resembling to the ‘Google’ sign itself the offices are splashed with bright colours on a majority of the walls and floors. This vibrant atmosphere is similar to the Facebook offices in that they are modern and just ooze ‘coolness’.
- Red Bull, UK – This office is set in the country’s capital and also boasts some quite unique features, including a futuristic slide from upstairs to downstairs. It’s definitely a quicker way to get to a meeting. If this wasn’t a good enough way to get from one level to the next, the building also has a rivalled floating staircase too. To top this office off it has a roof terrace looking over London. Not a bad way to spend your breaks.
