If you ever wondered what it would be like to step foot in the billionaire Facebook CEO’s office, look no further. Not only is the building itself something to marvel at, but inside lies a plethora of mind-blowing technology and quirky design choices.
Welcome to One Hacker Way
Located in Menlo Park, California stands the new headquarters of Facebook. With its 430,000 square feet of space and over 10 acres of land, this complex was designed with “hacker culture” in mind – an ode to Zuckerberg’s early days as a programmer.
Walking into the lobby alone makes one feel like they’re stepping into another dimension – floor-to-ceiling multimedia installations hang throughout each wall projecting images beyond belief. A massive title screen displays daily metrics including log-ins and friendship requests made within hours or minutes!
But enough about that; let’s move on!
The Open-Plan Concept: No Walls Allowed
When I say open-plan concept – I mean no walls allowed! This layout fosters communication between employees – creating an atmosphere where ideas flow freely around every room (even if it means hearing your co-workers chew through their lunch).
The desks are not what you’d expect either: made from reclaimed wood acquired by being pulled straight out of old buildings. But don’t let these rustic surfaces deceive you – when sitting down at one of those chairs paired with a chocolate-stained gourmet doughnut washed down with some green juice from Rubicon Organics’ products located just off campus…this writer honestly got lost for five seconds day-dreaming…
Now back on track we go!!
Each table floats atop disassembled filing cabinets providing ample storage while giving employees complete freedom of movement beneath them out on yet more reclaimed wood flooring which brings us nicely onto our next point!
While We’re Talking About The Flooring…
On top of the reclaimed wood floors runs computer wiring and electrical cables like a river, connecting every machine in the room directly to Zuckerberg’s neural network (okay not really, but it definitely sounds cool!).
The industrial vibe continues – corrugated roofs dot high above the workspace upcycled from old shipping containers which were transformed into sleek offices with their metallic grey finish adding yet another layer of ruggedness. These boxed rooms become an escape for coders looking for some quiet time from their monitors or maybe just napping space…
Meeting Rooms that will Blow Your Mind
While most meeting rooms may be dreary and uninspiring – walking into one of Facebook’s meeting spaces is more akin to stepping inside Disneyland’s Space Mountain ride.
Imagine entering a room where walls turn into giant iPads! (okay they’re technically called digital whiteboards)— taking notes has never been easier since you can see what your co-worker wrote on any wall simultaneously as those ideas flow. With display screens attached to desks and built within wooden cubicles around them used so everyone in attendance sees projections of diagrams in real-time without anyone having their view blocked!!!
It’s normal for these conferences to go off-topic sometimes when someone gets carried away during idea-sharing sessions – often culminating in impromptu dance parties complete with smoke machines!
But wait there’s more!
The Perks Of Being A Facebook Employee
Two words: nap pods.
If anything could sum up Silicon Valley culture – I would argue this is it. Embracing our attachment issues—Facebook ensures ultimate relaxation by providing employees comfortable spaces, dark enough even if someone reads or types loudly next door might never disturb them…one pod at a time.
Of course, ordinary office environments don’t have custom-made “living-room-inspired” conference nooks perfect for lounging that gazes across California… These customizable lounge areas are chock-full of colorful chairs offering different seating positions depending on one’s mood.
Employees also enjoy excellent meal options thanks to a full-time executive chef in the company’s kitchen – or food-pod as it has been electrically dubbed.
For tech hounds, the on-campus Facebook store provides work and leisure accessories including T-shirt printing and custom parts for self-designed robots (One of our writers may have purchased 10 selfie sticks).
A Desk With A View
A considerable perk of working at this fast-moving startup is Zuckerberg’s dedication to providing pleasant views along with your daily dose of diminishing online privacy rights—massive windows line and span across both floors affording staff a view unlike any other looking out over rolling hills dotted with cypress trees which are held up by complex root systems that foster nutrient transport from soil!
The nautical-themed upstairs deck offers another way for employees get some fresh air too; We’re not sure what happened, but we’re guessing someone got seasick after standing near one those freighters cruising past nearby port district…
Get Your Groove On
If you thought nap pods represented peak Silicon Valley culture, wait until you see what’s next: The silent disco rave room. Illuminated with wild colors generating ambient energy – circulating dance rhythms via wireless headphones while preventing outsiders hearing how off-beat someone might strike a pose inside is where hacker dreams come alive…(We wish more people had been in there during our visit for pure comedic value).
It’s obvious why Mark Zuckerberg did not opt to design his office space like an average corporation – setting up shop among salivating minds devoted to software development.
Aside from quirks such as giant iPads walls distractingly imploring workers to touch EVERY screen—it is clear Facebook chose innovation over corporate conformity…including letting us do things like write articles about visiting Zuck’s high-tech office whilst wearing casual attire…and naming-drop brands!
Before we let you go – A few notable aspects we just could not resist mentioning:
Pet-friendly office where four-legged friends roam the office corridors
Noodle bar to tantalize your taste-buds with traditional Japanese cuisine
With that in mind, Friends, coworkers anyone really who is interested keep an eye out for open positions within Facebook – there might be a desk waiting for you underneath one of these reclaimed wooden tables!
