The environment you work in can influence your productivity and mood just as much as who you’re with or what you are working on. Freelancers and Contractors often have to make do with a client’s hot desk or a home office, but we can all dream. Here are some of the world’s most inspiring offices:
This Architects’ office is placed half underground with an outward view of the forest scenery. This would be perfect with the recent sunny weather we’ve been having!
This Bond villain-esque office belongs to Swedish internet provider, White Mountain. The site is a disused anti-atomic shelter 100ft below the city – converted into a cool, modern office which is sure to impress clients.
This office is on Silicon Roundabout in Shorditch – The online entertainment company have created an office which helps spur imagination and creativity with outdoors themed rooms, including a tree house meeting room and a slide
The Red Bull offices were designed to create an open, dynamic workplace. The design is cool and modern, with quirky features like the slide and a Ping Pong meeting room table.
Google are renowned for their creative workspaces. The London office has various themed rooms including Granny’s Flat and the Lala library (pictured above). ‘Hedge your bets’, a roof garden, gives employees a space to work or relax outside of the office environment.
Branson has as always worked outside of a traditional office, the image above shows him and his team discussing business ideas on his private island. Okay, so we’re not all lucky enough to own our own island paradise to work on – but we like the idea of remote working in different locations to find inspiration!
