We all dream of cool offices, but most of us only get as far as customising our desk area with a few photos and a gadget or two. But check out video social networking company Web.tv’s awesome offices. Located in Turkey, the sprawling building hosts over 200 employees and offers a range of stations for any kind of mood, be it social, relaxing, or a quiet spot to focus.

Since work is where we spend a large portion of our day, Web.tv decided to make it a fun place to be, with themed offices that are caves, ski lifts, a sail boat, a stage, bar, café, you name it. Scroll on and be amazed.

The stage space allows workers to enjoy their hobbies like playing in a band, staging short plays, reciting poetry.

When the day is done and a well-deserved drink is in order, just pop down stairs to the company’s own bar. Wonder if the drinks are subsidised…?

Creating the perfect office environment is a major challenge for new and experienced entrepreneurs alike. Your workplace environment affects the morale of every member of your team, including you, and is responsible for forming that important first impression of every prospective client who walks in the door.

But rather than sit and speculate about how to make your office better, why not look to some great examples of companies that have already mastered it?

Key principles

Throughout the following examples, you’ll see the following principles in action:

  • Adherence to brand values and personality. First, every office seems to “fit” with the overall culture and personality of the brand offering it. This provides the groundwork for better team cohesion and establishes a more powerful identity for the company.
  • Sensory experiences. There are interesting sights, sounds and even pleasant smells, making each office seem both unique and welcoming. Small environmental changes here can make a big difference.
  • Comfort and convenience. Finally, most of these office designs aim to make life more comfortable and convenient for these businesses’ employees. Comfort and convenience lead to higher employee retention and better on-the-job performance.

Now let’s dig into six companies whose offices make work more appealing to everyone involved:

  1. Google
  2. Carbon Black
  3. Nokia
  4. HomeAdvisor
  5. Moz
  6. Domino’s Pizza

Having great company culture is no longer just an option. Today’s workers consider it as much as they consider salary and benefits. In fact, fantastic company culture is almost expected along with other traditional benefits.

While the culture that works for one company might not work for another, you can learn a lot from companies who are doing it right, and get started on company culture hacks of your own.

The building could be created using inflatables made of white antibacterial nylon that are placed around the exterior of an ordinary office building.
