If you think about it, it makes sense to design work spaces with cool gadgets and amenities. After all, you are spending one third of your time there – for some of us even more. This week on the blog, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite work spaces that will have you green with envy!
Rooftop minigolf, TV-fireplace, juicer bikes, a jamming room and free food? Sounds like the perfect work space to us! Google’s Toronto HQ truly has it all, and it’s housed on the 12th floor of a building in the heart of the city. Wonder what the neighbours below think when someone’s blasting the tuba?

This office is in a bulletproof location – and we mean that literally because it’s housed in an old police station! The 33,000 sq. foot office also has a nap room and a 24-hour gym. There’s also 47 TVs all around the office with – you guessed it – realtime HootFeeds! They also recently opened a second location in the city, and it’s just as cool as the original.
Corus Entertainment, Toronto
This office has a slide. Yes, a giant three story slide that takes you from the foyer to the atrium. It’s right on the lakefront and houses 11 Toronto-based operations which includes 24 tv services, 3 radio stations and over 1,100 employees.
AirBnB, San Francisco
AirBnB’s 170,000 square foot headquarters in San Francisco has a massive three-floor living green wall, an open space/lounge where creatives can work or just hang out, and individual office spaces which are made up of actual home listing replicas!
We truly saved the best for last. With a name like Inventionland, you should expect the office to be something extraordinary. And it is – the office where dreams come true looks like it’s straight out of a storybook. There’s the Pirate Ship Discovery which is a ship wrecked in the water where high-tech products and games are invented. Then there’s a giant shoe called the Nursery Nook where children’s products like toys and books are made. Go take a virtual tour, our descriptions don’t do it any justice!
Do you have any cool amenities at your workplace?
