Tech Company Office Design

Office Snapshots began in 2007 which was right around the time that Google’s Mountain View headquarters was receiving worldwide media attention for its playful and colorful office designs.

Fast forward to today and it is clear that those early Google offices played a big role in formalizing the need for tech companies to create amazing office environments for their employees.

What are some of the traits tech company offices frequently have? We are glad you asked.

Eye-catching reception areas: The reception area is a great way to make a positive first impression on visitors, potential hires, and clients.

Open office / open plan layouts: Even though there is great debate over the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of open plan offices, tech companies are usually going to employ them as the primary type of workstation for employees.

Cafeterias: Many tech companies offer free or discounted meals for employees and the cafeteria is the primary way to serve them.

Pantry areas and coffee points: When not eating a full meal, teams can still enjoy snacks and drinks throughout the day at well-stocked pantry areas. These can range from grab-and-go drinks to full-serve coffee bars with baristas.
