  • Airbnb, one of the web’s fastest growing and most talked about companies, recently moved into its new San Francisco-based offices. Located in Potrero Hill, the space was designed by Michael Garcia and Farid Tamjidi of Garcia-Tamjidi.

    The company recently made made the decision to design and move into the space to accommodate its growing number of employees, which now numbers 100+ in the SF office. Airbnb’s workstations were fit out using wonderful Vitra furniture.

    One fun detail worked into the office’s design was the addition of meeting rooms designed some to look like rooms from a few of Airbnb’s rental listings. San Francisco-based firm IDF Studio was brought in to creatively source and outfit each of these rooms as well as several public meeting areas.

    A bonus service that the headquarters boasts is a full-time chef, which of course helps the company provide on-site meals for staff. Whether or not those meals are free is another question, but we’ve seen several companies try this out as a way to foster community among employees while keeping them at work thereby adding to productivity.
