Airbnb

San Francisco, California

Airbnb’s new office perfectly expresses the young company’s ethos of openness, collaboration and constant enterprise—all in the comfort of home.  After four months embedded in Airbnb’s offices, the Gensler team designed an open-plan space, giving employees continual freedom to choose where and how to work. Each room is distinct, inspired by a different noteworthy Airbnb listing. With many of the furnishings also sourced creatively and internationally, this unusual workspace preserves an authentic feel. Airbnb's mantra, "travel like a human,” was translated into a meandering path that connects the spaces—from library to the full-service kitchen and large dining area—and the spectacular City views.
