Facebook’s new office space
Online social networking giant Facebook last month moved to new offices in California, at the Stanford Research Park. The new office space has an open-plan design, with many walls left purposefully unfinished – this is something of a blank canvas for Facebook employees, who are free to use the blank space as they see fit.
Employee Everett Katigbak tells the story of the move on the Facebook blog:
“Just as people make the space on the website their own, we’ve opted to do the same with our physical space. We’ve left a lot of the walls white and the spaces unfinished to encourage employees to add the finishing touches.”
The new office space is designed to allow collaboration. People and teams sit close together, with executives and managers seated in central areas where they are accessible to all employees.
