Coolest 0ffices In The World
Washington Square Park Dental in San Francisco
Your office may require you to interact with customers about quite mundane things. You can enhance the experience by adding some nice touches to set you apart from the competition.
This can work for the terrifying, too – this US dentist has TV screens, comforting open-plan spaces and plenty of foliage to help turn something potentially unpleasant into a more relaxing experience.
Macquarie Investment Bank in Sydney
An investment bank in Sydney may not feel like the most creative place to work, but Macquarie has gone out on a limb to help staff collaborate.
The office is a highly flexible space, with employees able to meet at one of 26 different “meeting pods”. As a result, more than half of staff change their workplaces every day, aiding interaction within the business.
Dtac Headquarters Bangkok
The health and fitness of your staff doesn’t need to start and end with vague encouragement to cycle to work or take a walk at lunch.
Australian design firm Hassell won a competition to design the office of Thai telco Dtac. An eye-catching element to the workspace is a running track, where sedentary employees can take a brief jog.
ANZ Centre in Melbourne
Another seemingly dowdy Australian bank has created a rather wonderful office.
While it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to afford a vast, split-level workspace, you can take some valuable lessons from the ANZ office.
There are 44 different working hubs centred around communal facilities such as a café and public art, with employees also able to escape to quiet working zones.
