Yes, there’s a big “swoosh” – it’s on the rooftop. But besides the signature swoosh, there are little nods to their sports origins, like the mosaic of Michael Jordan in their cafeteria (below).

Airbnb has revolutionized how we travel, and make it possible to stay somewhere other than a hotel – and their workspace reflects this. The meeting rooms look more like camping tents than office cubicles.

The spherical building has been top secret for some time now. It’s finally complete — and the views and office design are breathtakingly minimalist. Rumor has it some employees are uncomfortable with the sparse and open office spaces. But the lack of visual clutter is probably incredible for unleashing your creative side, distraction-free.

They may be owned by Apple, but they definitely don’t look like it. Gold stairwells and lacquer red meeting areas are just a few of the tricked out office design features in this cool office space. Two industrial buildings were renovated to create the space where audiophiles and hipsters come together.

Google has offices around the world, and they’re all pretty creative. In fact, Google’s Zurich, Switzerland location took real ski gondolas and converted them into hanging cubicles. But the NYC location might feature the coolest office design, complete with hammocks for “hanging” out.

A recent renovation updated Amazon’s Seattle offices to offer more work and lounge areas. An open floor plan optimizes flow and allows for workers to drift throughout the day while working.

Most of the office spaces in this article are off limits. But if you have at least 10,000 YouTube followers, you can access their workspace for your production needs. According to their website, “YouTube Space LA contains large production stages, green screens, cameras, lights, sound gear, electrical and grip equipment. We also offer post-production resources ranging from private editing suites to voice-over recording booths. It’s all available at no charge if your channel has at least 10,000 subscribers.”

The San Francisco office designed by Interior Architects was such a hit that LinkedIn asked them to execute their NYC offices, too. Allegedly there’s a hidden speakeasy somewhere in the office spaces, but they’re not telling.
