Innovative office spaces bring the outdoors in

| November 21, 2014

The days of boring office cubicles (and “cube dwellers”) are slowing disappearing. Architects and designers are getting more creative with out-of-the-box workplaces that bring outdoor fun in. The latest to join the list of innovative office spaces is Onefootball, which programs the world’s leading football app.

Designed by TKEZ, an architecture firm in Munich, Onefootball’s new Berlin headquarters is a lively fusion of work and play. The office features a green AstroTurf track that snakes from the elevator across the reception, open desk areas, turfed conference rooms, and football-themed trimmings like locker room-style metal cabinets. The dining room floor displays graphics denoting game strategies and each end of the track running through the 15,000 square-foot office has a goal post. One of the corners has been converted into a gaming zone, complete with soccer tables and adorned with soccer team scarves.
