Airbnb ‘Welcome to the Neighbourhood’

General information June 22nd 2017
Airbnb ‘Welcome to the Neighbourhood’

Airbnb, founded in 2008 has provided us an alternative to staying in hotels, allowing people to stay in homes all over the world instead for short periods of time. The success of Airbnb has been colossal and the company has unveiled its new premises in Dublin in collaboration with architects Heneghen Peng. These are the first offices that Airbnb has created from scratch and they certainly bring the wow factor into the workplace. The design has dramatically transformed the disused warehouse which will soon be rolled out in offices across the world. The building boasts over 4000sqm and will house around 400 staff members.

The building is made up of of 29 sections clustered inside the warehouse designed to a very high specification. Each neighbourhood is fitted the same with ample storage for personal items, a large boardroom table that encourages brainstorming, one or two sit stand desks, and a breakout area.
