Spaces That Will Give You Office

download-15A well-designed work space holds many benefits for both the workers and the company. It can increase engagement and productivity while encouraging employees to do their best work. These office spaces are not your typical stodgy cube-farms. Here are six interesting and intriguing locations that have transformed what it means to spend the day in the office.

1. DXAgency

The DXAgency office was designed to invoke the feeling of a close-knit community or a team, said Sandy Rubinstein, the CEO.

“There are a limited number of offices, and those offices rarely close the doors,” Rubinstein said. “There are slippers given to each employee so they can kick their shoes off and [brainstorm].”

There are several kitchens stocked with snacks and sodas, “as you would see in a friend’s house.”

The employees love the company’s game room located in the basement of the building surrounded by bluestone rock and lit by black iron chandeliers, Rubinstein said.

“There is also a kitchen and long wooden picnic table with long benches for seating. This is the room where people can let off steam and play pinball or video games, as well as the location for our potluck lunches and our Free Foodie Fridays catered by different local restaurants,” she added.

2. Framebridge

Susan Tynan, the CEO and founder of custom framing company Framebridge, said the office has been modernized into a comfortable, functioning corporate office.

Framebridge’s in-house creative team designed the office space, highlighting the team’s custom frames and in-house photography along with their collective work, Tynan said.

“Employees love how warm, welcoming and Instagram-ready the office space is. From plush couches and office nooks to long wooden tables used for boardroom meetings, Framebridge embraces the office’s former Georgetown home identity,” Tynan said.

3. The Yard

The floor-to-ceiling, 22-foot windows of The Yard’s 34th Street location reveal the area’s surroundings and are meant to convey the feeling of an oasis above the bustle of Herald Square.

“We loved the high ceilings and ample natural light throughout this location and wanted to make sure our members would be able to really take advantage of it,” said Morris Levy, the co-founder and CEO of the company.
