Las 6 oficinas más “cool” del mundo

25 11 2007

McLaren Technology Centre – Surrey UK
The staggeringly sleek McLaren Technology Centre is an office and factory in Surrey for the Formula One racing-car company. An artificial lake helps to cool the building and its beating heart – a 475-foot-long wind tunnel used to test Formula One cars.

Googleplex – California USA
Googles work ethos sets it apart from other employers. Free meals, a swimming spa, and free doctors onsite. Google engineers can spend
20% of time on independent projects. No wonder the Googleplex gets 1,300
resumés each day!

Gadgets and gizmos dominate the deskspace

Canary Wharf – London UK
Contains Londons three tallest buildings, 1 Canada Square, 8 Canada Square and the Citigroup Tower.

With almost 100,000 people working on-site the buildings are equipped with food and retail outlets, gyms, hairdressers and hotels.

Red Bull – London UK

Featuring slides and table tennis you could be forgiven for thinking you were in a nursery rather than a London office. The Soho based London HQ of Red Bull wins in the coolness stakes though.

Williams Group – Grand Rapids USA

This project for the non-profit consulting group won the 2007 Honor Award in Interior Architecture for design. The space is designed to support the collaborative nature, team structure and strong service culture of the company.

VW Phaeton Plant – Dresden Germany

Who said factories have to be dirty and noisy? A simply beautiful factory.
