3) Red Bull – London

The Red Bull offices, designed by Jump Studios is one of the greatest office designs in London. Jump said ““Encouraging interaction between employees while communicating the company’s brand values and identity were the dual aims of the design of Red Bull’s new 1,860 sq m headquarters.” It is clear to see that the hyperactivity and adrenaline-overload associated with Red Bull energy drinks are exactly what inspired the design of their brand new headquarters located in London’s Soho district.

2) Pixar Studios - Emeryville, CA

The main studio for Pixar is based in Emeryville, California and the design truly reflects what Pixar do. Shortly after you walk through the Pixar gates you are greeted by the famous lamp and ball from Luxo Jr, Pixar’s first film. From there, you will recognise characters from the popular Pixar films dotted around the space, along with an interesting set up of work stations along with break out areas and games rooms, all in keeping with the Pixar theme.

1) Google – Zurich

Google’s engineering hub in Zurich, designed by Camenzind Evolution is one of the most incredible spaces. The design company asked the Google employees what it was they were looking for in an office and they replied, “”personal workspace needed to be functional and more neutral, communal areas had to offer strong visual and more aesthetically enjoyable and entertaining qualities to stimulate creativity, innovation and collaboration.” So, they created a space with micro conference rooms, game rooms, snack rooms, massage rooms and of course, slides and poles to get from one floor to another super quick.
