AirBNB-Portland-Office-photo-by-Jeremy-Bittermann-1

Most call center designs leave a lot to be desired. Investments in workplace culture and visual appeal are rarely a priority, but things are different at Airbnb. The new Airbnb Portland office design is one of the freshest, most inspiring call center designs we know exist. It’s a warm, welcoming environment that is likely to pay off in both the productivity and workplace happiness of Airbnb employees.

It serves about 200 employees who handle inbound calls from Airbnb hosts and guests, a support framework for the entire Airbnb network.

The idea was not only to use the social media logos as a visual reference, but to transfer their qualities and usability functions into human character portrayed through fashion.’

The “Tree House” in Austin, Texas by Miró Rivera Architects

treehouse_miro_00

Located in Austin, Texas, the “Tree House” was designed by Miró Rivera Architects and features a stunning outside swimming pool, large glass windows, and a spacious living, dining, and kitchen area which all look directly into the surrounding woodland canopy.

“The local and natural materials of the exterior wrap into the interior of the home; stone walls and dark wood floors are contrasted by clean lines and glass above, creating the feeling of lightness,” say the architects. “Large glass windows and sliding doors take full advantage of the sweeping views of downtown Austin, dissolving the boundaries between interior and exterior, while deep overhangs frame views of the sky above.”
