Last year I visited the Google offices in Joburg and they were incredibly awesome. I think one of the reasons I hated working in a corporate environment was the boring office spaces we were in. Even when we moved to new buildings with new furniture, it was all so bland and there was little room for creativity.
Fortunately the millenials are all about creativity and comfort which means offices are getting over hauled and being replaced with fun, creative spaces. Spaces that allow more creative freedom are more productive and employees are more creative.
Isn’t this space super funky? I mean who doesn’t want to slide down to a meeting? I also think the colors are pretty awesome. A few trips down this slide could motivate pretty much anyone.
I love warehouses. I love the idea of wide open spaces with no walls or closed spaces which is why this space appeals to me on so many levels. There are traditional desks but also spaces for those who need a time out from the confines of their desk. Also those huge big windows speak to me on every level.
No one likes meetings. Well I have never met anyone who actually looks forward to meetings. I think these guys may though. I mean who wouldn’t want to have a meeting in a hot air balloon. Or a stationery cable car. I can only imagine how cool the rest of this office is.
I think this space is my favourite of the 5. Not only do I love the colours but I love the variety of spaces. I struggle to sit still. I am constantly moving from my desk to the dinning room table to the couch, even to the floor. I may consider going back to an office if it looks like this because I could move around without really bugging anyone.
This space has me wanting to repaint my (newly painted) office bright yellow with a magnetic wall.I will admit I don’t love these chairs and tables but love love the actual space and colours. It is open plan but also private.
Which one of these spaces are your favourite? If you work in an office how creative is it?
