We are seeing here how the offices of different companies are, and I take the opportunity to show you the offices of Facebook, one of the most cutting-edge social networks, which has just moved to other offices in Palo Alto. As they count in your blog, the idea has been to reorganize following the philosophy that has made the company grow, leaving unoccupied spaces for workers to personalize by adding their final touch.
It catches my attention how they have removed the cubicles Individuals homogenizing the workers who are together and feel closer to their peers. The bosses would occupy in this way the central space to be accessible at all times by other employees.
The truth is that the deployment to show the new offices is impressive, and they have a gallery full of photos of the "before", which shows how the ship was before it was occupied, and of course the "after". Here we don't see the football that have made Google offices famous or the careful design of other places, the truth is that I miss something more sophisticated, although I have nothing to allege the idea of the elimination of cubicles, since socially allows to exchange ideas more Quickly and decoratively expand the visual space.
A detail that I do not like a lot is about put the flags, It reminds me of a hotel and, if what is intended is to convey that it is a multinational, I prefer to put some maps of the areas. As I am not going to settle for a bad review, I would highlight the kitchen treatment, how it is integrated into the rest of the space, being part of it and how several areas have been reproduced to eat in different places with a specific visual identity: with a green wall.
In the meeting rooms we see how the traditional round table is alternated with a fairly large armchair, which I don't see very practical to meet but to take a nap if necessary. In other meeting rooms we see, of course, the typical very long table with a screen in the background. Another success I see here is to keep the glass doors so that no one is wrong and mistakenly enters the meeting.
