Revisiting Airbnb’s Listing-Inspired Headquarters
When Airbnb moved into their new headquarters last year, we had a great look into the space – which has turned into one of the most popular of all time. Using a variety of Vitra furnishings and cool, clean aesthetics, architecture firm Garcia-Tamjidi worked a delightful bit of magic.
However, when it came to a lot of the detail of the office, such as the conference rooms and public meeting spaces, the architects turned to Interior Design Fair to complete the job. Given that Airbnb’s service revolves around renting out people’s homes and rooms, the company thought it would be a great idea to model a number of these conference rooms after popular listings.
As impressive as this office is, it seems to only have been a temporary location for the company. I’ve recently learned that Airbnb is planning a move from their current Potrero Hill office to the popular SoMa area of San Francisco – for a very non-temporary length of 10 years.
