Key Elements:                       

  • Meeting rooms inspired by Airbnb listings around the world channeled into individual pods dotted around the otherwise open plan office. Each pod has windows on two walls to allow for uninterrupted views of the office.
  • A dynamic and flexible work environment – including a meeting room, modeled after an Amsterdam apartment, which can be split into two separate spaces.

  • A bench from the Pavilion of Ireland’s 2012 contribution to the Venice Biennale, designed by Heneghan Peng. The long 12-meter bench is constructed of 6 interlinked sections, 6 rotation-only fulcrums & 5 translation pivots. As users sit on the bench the height of each section alters, creating dips and peaks for user interaction.
  • A tiered all-hands meeting space, with the versatility to transform into an informal and relaxed working area, allowing staff to look out over the office.
  • Authentic references to the office’s home in Dublin – including a reception area modeled on an Irish pub with a horseshoe-shaped bar (the floor uses three different styles of tile found in pubs from different areas) and traditional Irish telephone boxes.
