Looking for ideas on how to have not only the coolest office on the block but a green one to boot? Take a tour of Twitter’s new eco-friendly office in downtown San Francisco.

Go green… with envy

Visitors are greeted by the famous Twitter logo, which was made from reclaimed barn wood. And the little birdies you see fluttering throughout the office are made from hot rolled steel.

The swish designer furniture is also sustainable. Sweet deal for the designer landing that deal, you say? Sara Morishige Williams, also happens to be the wife of Twitter CEO, Evan Williams.

The large boardroom table is made from concrete composed of 40% fly ash and 100% recyclable aggregate, complete with imbedded birdies flying across the table.

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.
