Studies indicate that the productivity of employees is in direct correlation to how comfortable they feel while in a working environment. I can only assume that the Google employees in Zurich, Switzerland are some of the most productive employees around! This bright, fun, colorful working space encourages nothing but creativity and enthusiasm from its workers.
Designed by the creative team at Camenzind Evolution, the resulting office space design is a “distinctive, diverse, light, and flexible workspace, which has been specifically developed to stimulate and support the Googlers in their challenging and innovative work.” The offices include personal workspace, formal and informal meeting rooms (often carrying the theme of the floor, for example subway cars), and communal areas (designed to combine fun, entertainment, and work). Additionally, to promote quick and speedy movement between floors, the design incorporates “quick connections” including fire poles and, wait for it, slides.
